Pope’s message for WYD: ‘Young people must go in haste to others, just like Mary’

At the conclusion of the Sunday Angelus, Pope Francis registered for the next World Youth Day to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, in August 2023. Assisted and accompanied by Portuguese university students studying in Rome, the Pope tapped his way to becoming the first officially registered pilgrim for World Youth Day. He encouraged young people around the world to now register for the international celebration of faith.


Rediscover the joy of fraternal embrace

The Pope said that after a long period, especially due to the pandemic,

“we will rediscover the joy of fraternal embrace between peoples and between generations, which we need so much.”

Pope Francis recently released a third message for World Youth Day 2023 in Lisbon, urging young people to follow in the footsteps of Our Lady, going in haste to others and dedicating our lives to Jesus.
