Adventurers of beauty

· The 30th anniversary of World Youth Day ·

“You young people are brave adventurers”. “In encouraging you to rediscover the beauty of the human vocation to love, I also urge you to rebel against the widespread tendency to reduce love to something banal”, the Holy Father wrote this in his Message for World Youth Day, to be celebrated at the diocesan level on Palm Sunday. It is the second of the three messages dedicated to the Beatitudes, which will aid in preparing for the international gathering to be held in Poland 2016. “Thirty years ago”, Francis wrote, “John Paul II instituted the World Youth Days. May the saintly Pope, Patron of WYD, intercede on behalf of our pilgrimage toward Krakow”.
