Aug. 16 (CWNews.com) - The 20th celebration of World Youth Day (WYD) should demonstrate that faith has a role to play in modern European society, Cardinal Joachim Meisner told a news conference in Cologne on August 16.

Speaking at the same news conference, on the opening day of WYD, Cardinal Karl Lehmann said that the witness of the Catholic Church must be "public, open, and official."

"At last the day has arrived!" said Cardinal Meisner as he welcomed the official WYD opening. He thanked the thousands of volunteers who have helped in preparation for the events, and the local and national government officials who have given their cooperation.
