Pope Benedict XVI, the 84-year-old pontiff, celebrated the closing Mass on Sunday of the World Youth Day festival in Spain. World Youth Day is a Catholic event, which draws hundreds of thousands of pilgrims from all over the world. Pilgrims from 190 nations attended the event.
The first World Youth Day event was held a quarter century ago by Pope John Paul II in a bid to reinvigorate and spread the faith among the young.
