The american media has been inundated with news of the arrival of Pope Benedict the 16th. It's his first visit to this country, and he plans to hold large masses in Washington and New York City that will draw tens of thousands.
But, despite the interest in the visit among both Catholics and non-Catholics, there are many questions being raised about the state of the church itself. Questions about inclusion, abortion, and the priest sex scandal. Questions about the influence of secularism and whether young people are listening to the Pope's "conservative" message about key social issues.
Today, where we live, we're going to look at the state of the Catholic Church today, especially among young people, and we'd like to hear from you.
Later, we'll hear from a priest who is taking a group of young people to see the pope, and we'll talk about a website that caters to catholics in their 20s and 30s.
