WORLD YOUTH DAY ACTIVITIES
Some writers believe that World Youth Day corrupts Catholic youth. An article from The West Australian website would seem to back them up:
Even true believers fail to follow Vatican line Legend has it that rubbish collectors in Rome made a startling discovery at the end of World Youth Day 2000. Hundreds of thousands of young Catholics had flocked to the Italian capital to attend celebrations culminating in a Mass presided over by Pope John Paul II.
When it was all over, the collectors sifted through debris left behind on a field transformed by participants into a gigantic campsite during the week-long duration of the religious fest.
Their find: thousands of used condoms.
