FLAME 2 at Wembley!... 

How is it possible to try and describe what was a fantastic day of joy, praise, and prayer? 

We were joined by 8,000 young people who had come along like us to 'celebrate with joy the mercy of God.'

Below is a photo of the Redemptorist Youth Ministry group!

Among the speakers and presenters we had the 57 year old Cardinal from Manila, Cardinal Luis Tagle who gave a stirring presentation on what is the joy of Gospel. He spoke clearly to our hearts about the mercy of God and how God has a special care and concern for each person.
