Message of the Holy Father to the Youth

By Pope Francis

“Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God” (Lk 1:30)

Dear young people,

World Youth Day 2018 represents another step in preparation for the international WYD due to take place in Panama in January 2019. This new stage of our pilgrimage falls in the same year that the Ordinary Assembly of the Synod of Bishops will meet on the theme: Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment. This is a happy coincidence. The focus, prayer and reflection of the Church will turn to you young people, with the desire to receive and, above all, to embrace the precious gift that you are to God, to the Church and to the world.

Joseph Nguyen SDB) and what it means wearing the Cross which is commonly seen among our Priests. The revelation came after a video clip which young people watched about the Cruxification of Jesus Christ and His rise from the dead. Young people also had the opportunity to pray Taize prayer led by Fr. Joseph SDB, where they adored and venerated before the Cross and brought their prayer intentions for 2018 before Christ.
