The following comes from an August 17 Angelus article by Clara Fox:
Flashing lights, throbbing bass, wild cheers — the only thing differentiating the crowd gathered at UCLA campus from a typical rock concert were the distinctly Christian lyrics of the band WAL.
“Tonight anything is possible. Tonight anyone can be transformed,” the lead singers, Matthew and Michael Paul Leon, said to the young high school students from across the Greater Los Angeles area, who had come to participate in the second annual City of Saints event presented by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The weekend event, hosted by Archbishop José H. Gomez and held Aug. 5 to Aug.7 at the UCLA Conference Center, was an opportunity for teens to encounter Christ through taking part in praise and worship, listening to renowned speakers and attending Mass.
