We pray for a good preparation of the World Youth Day. May the WYD move the hearts of young people all over the world and allow all of us to discover the hope that comes from the meeting with Christ.
World Youth Day is a celebration of a young Church. Every few years the youth meet with the Pope to pray together and to experience God?s love and mercy. The next WYD will take place in Krakow, Poland in July 2016. The theme of the XXXI WYD, chosen by the Pope, are Christ?s words: ?Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy? (Mt 5:7).
500 days before the WYD begins, we launch a virtual map on which everyone will be able to mark a place where a prayer for WYD takes place. The map will allow us to see how many people are joining us in this prayer and it will enable us to meet young people from all over the world.
