Even before World Youth Day was celebrated in Madrid, Benedict XVI described the gathering as a 'cascade of light.' Now, a year later, that's actually the title of a new World Youth Day book. Those who took part in organizing the big event in Madrid, chose the phrase to summarize the successful meeting.
Over 1.5 million people from 193 countries visited Madrid to celebrate World Youth Day with Benedict XVI. The book, which is in Spanish, includes 224 photographs and all the speeches given by Benedict XVI. Also included is the thank you letter, he sent to Spanish Cardinal, Antonio Maria Rouco Varela, who serves as the Archbishop of Madrid.
