Powerful testimonies from World Youth Day, Madrid 2011 in preparation for Rio 2013.

World Youth Day is one of the biggest religious events in the world, drawing millions of young people from across the globe to come and spend time together with the Holy Father. Instituted by Blessed John Paul II in 1985, they have become a highlight of the Catholic calendar.

This inspiring booklet, illustrated with photos, contains testimonies from young British pilgrims regarding their faith and their varied experiences of the latest World Youth Day in Madrid, 2011. It is a dynamic and diverse collection of memories of the biggest youth event under the baking Madrid sun.

Each testimony gives powerful witness to the living hope, faith, and vibrant youth of the Church, and looks forward to Rio 2013 and beyond.

You don't have to be Roman Catholic to enjoy this book, which offers a great insight into World Youth Day 2012. The book is simply designed and easy to read, and the pictures really capture the atmosphere and experience of WYD for readers; if you're thinking about going this year, perhaps this would be a fantastic book to pick up to learn a little more about what the experience entails. I thoroughly recommend reading the book and it's really not expensive in comparison to other ones on the market!!
