Rome Reports, 28 July

Just as his final WYD Mass was drawing to a close, Pope Francis announced that the next WYD celebration will take place in Krakow, Poland, in 2016. With roughly three million Polish pilgrims in Rio, the announcement was marked by loud cheers and applause.

Blessed John Paul II launched WYD. In a way, this location will honour the Polish Pope, especially since he was very fond of the city, having served as its archbishop from 1964 to 1978.
