E-mail Print PDF

The Pontifical Council for the Laity released today, February 6, 2014, the Message of the Holy Father for the 29th World Youth Day. WYD 2014 is to be celebrated in the local Churches on April 13 on the theme "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" (Mt 5:3). In his Message, the Holy Father points out that 2014 "marks the thirtieth anniversary of the entrustment of the Jubilee Cross of the Redemption to the young. That symbolic act by John Paul II was the beginning of the great youth pilgrimage which has since crossed the five continents." WYD 2002 was held in Toronto, with dioceses across Canada organizing special opportunities to receive and welcome youth pilgrims from around the world.
