The undertaking will end with 22 winning entrants either attending World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid or receiving video equipment if they choose.

A priest ponders ways to get young Catholics to confession.

He was a 16-year-old Catholic high school student who entered my confessional during a school reconciliation service at a local retreat house where I assist with confessions. “I’ve done everything,” he said, like some penitents when they don’t know where to begin or how to get started.
