The traditional Palm Sunday meeting of youth in the Basilica of St. John Lateran will have Eucharistic adoration as its focus. The March 20 meeting will serve as a preparation for the world event in Cologne, Germany, this Aug. 15-21, according to the Vicariate of Rome.

Cardinal Camillo Ruini will substitute the Pope in leading the reflection on the topic of the World Youth Day: “We Have Come to Worship Him.” The Holy Father will send a message for the occasion.

Father Daniel Ange, French monk and founder of Jeunesse Lumiere, a Catholic international school of prayer and evangelization, will preach on the Eucharist.
