“I thoroughly enjoyed my experience of giving a morning of catechesis to the young adults of the Juventutem International Federation. I was quite impressed with their maturity and the quality of their attention and questions after the presentation of the catechesis. I was also delighted to be able to participate in the celebration of the Solemn Pontifical Mass offered by Bishop Schneider. I was edified by the prayerfulness of the young people in attendance. May God bless you and all the member of the Juventutem International Federation.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
+Robert J. McManus, Bishop of Worcester” – 8th August 2016
“Dear young friends,
I was glad to meet your group, including some Dubliners, for catechesis and Mass last week in Krakow. When I was requested by the Vatican to do so, I wondered if I would need to preach in Latin, but happily, English was sufficient!
Answering Pope Francis’ invitation, you came to Poland from various countries to learn about divine mercy, to make friends and to worship God together. I am sure that, as the Holy Father pointed out at the Vigil, you will not “confuse happiness with a sofa” but rather will “offer the best of yourselves”.
May God inspire you, through an always more personal encounter with Him Who is Love incarnate.
Signed: Diarmuid Martin, Archbishop of Dublin – 1st August 2016”

Dear Father, you were kind enough to invite me to celebrate Holy Mass for the young people of “Juventutem” taking part this coming Summer in the Catholic World Youth Day in Krakow. I replied to you through my secretary saying that I was sorry not to be able to attend, owing to other commitments that did not enable me to come to Poland. I am writing to thank you for sending me this invitation and to assure you that I shall accompany this great gathering of young people with my prayers. Like John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Pope Francis, we must support young Christians with our pastoral care in order to lead them to Christ and to give them the opportunity of establishing a personal and intimate relationship with Him. Young people are the future of our society and of the Church.
Please accept the expression of my most cordial greetings and be assured of my prayers for all your intentions.
Robert Card. Sarah, Vatican City, 24th June 2016
Secretariat for the Economy:
Dear young Catholics of the Juventutem youth movement, I prayed for you and all the young adults gathered around Pope Francis last week in Krakow for the World Youth Day. As you know, urgent business at the Vatican prevented me from coming to Poland to deliver one of the official catecheses and to offer Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite for your group. However, I am pleased to hear that six of my fellow bishops accompanied you. As you travel to your home countries, be assured of my prayer for all WYD participants. May you all help spread God’s mercy, with conviction and joy.
Signed: George Cardinal Pell, Prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy, 2nd August 2016

FOEDERATIO INTERNATIONALIS “Juventutem Soleto”
9, via Paolo Orsini
All members and supporters of Juventutem will be remembered at Holy Mass today.
On the Feast of Our Lady Help of Christians on May 24, 2006 (in Bern, Switzerland), the Juventutem International Federation enjoys moral personality.
There were 31 co-founders originating from 16 countries on every continent: Russia, Germany, Australia, Italy, China, Ireland, Brazil, Great-Britain, France, USA, Hungary, Switzerland, Kenya, Spain, The Netherlands and Austria.
An independent non political youth structure loyal to Roman Catholic authorities, the Juventutem International Federation drew inspiration from the International Una Voce Federation (http://www.ifuv.org/) as well as from various other Catholic institutions.
The Juventutem International Federation is a Catholic network fostering the sanctification of the youths worldwide according to the Roman traditions of the Church. We wish to contribute to the sanctification of the members of Juventutem and of any youths our contemporaries.
