Gonzalo speaks to how he thinks the Church should be clear about young adults' roads to happiness.

What is actually important for a person to be happy? Often, mainstream culture can pull people in the wrong direction, points out Gonzalo Martinez. "I like it when the Church shows the conviction of being a Catholic," he shares.

Gonzalo Martinez: For me, it is important, if you're speaking to the youth, is to always make the distinction between what's important for us on a spiritual level and what's important for us to actually be happy, than what is out there in society, what is out there in culture.

I think there's very conflicting voices and there's a lot of voices coming from the culture and the society that we live in that actually take us the wrong way, take us on the wrong path. I like it when the Church shows the conviction of being a Catholic.
