Even if youth culture is often marked by individualism, superficiality and hedonism, the council’s president, Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, said that its “diversity” is “not only negative” but “contains surprising seeds of fruitfulness and authenticity.”That is what I tell people too. "Yes Fr. Altier, the music is awful, but I'm just trying to understand young people's language and feelings and harvest the seeds of fruitfulness and authenticity. Which is why I don't listen to people like Beyonce, BTW."
In his effort to understand young people’s language and feelings, Ravasi confessed to listening to a CD by the late British pop singer Amy Winehouse, noting that “a quest for meaning emerges even from her distraught music and lyrics.”
