In August 1989 the Catholic church celebrated Youth Day in Santiago de Compostela. This year, Youth Day will be held in Sydney.
As many as 225,000 pilgrims are expected to converge on the city as part of the festival, to be held from July 15, the climax of which will be a visit by Pope Benedict XVI.
PILGRIMS at World Youth Day will receive inspirational messages from Pope Benedict XVI via their mobile phones. Giant television screens will be set up at event sites allowing pilgrims' text-messaged prayers to be shared.
The Archbishop of Sydney, George Pell, has taken his message of World Youth Day to YouTube, where he last night announced an online social networking site for pilgrims.
Cardinal Pell said World Youth Day in Sydney would be the most technologically advanced event the church has known.
"We have an ancient message but it has to be explained in terms that are comprehensible to all generations," he said.
Cardinal Pell said the Pope was keen to embrace new technology and virtual religion. The Vatican has its own web domain (.va) and Vatican Radio offers podcasts in eight languages.
