Young Catholics on the new Pope

pope-conclave1132.jpgThe papal conclave is set for Tuesday, when cardinals will meet in Vatican City to elect a successor to Pope Benedict XVI. He is the only pope in 600 years to have retired, and whoever is chosen next could well set the tone for the Catholic church for many years to come.

Sonali Karnick spoke with two people about what the younger generation of Catholics is hoping for. Anna Tafuto is the activities coordinator at the Don Bosco Youth Leadership Centre in east-end Montreal. She attends Mary Help of Christians church in Rivière-des-Prairies. Lukas Kusiak is from Dollard-des-Ormeaux. He's helping organize the next World Youth Day, for Catholic young people, to be held in Rio de Janeiro this summer. He is 20 years old, and a member of Saint Luke's parish in DDO.
