POPE bENEDICT xvi'S MESSAGE FOR the TWENTY-EIGHTH WORLD YOUTH DAY
(photo by Alphonsus Fok and Grace Lu)
Vatican City, 16 November 2012 (VIS) - "Go and make disciples of all nations!"
This is the title of the Holy Father's Message for the twenty-eighth World Youth Day 2013, which will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in July 2013. Some excerpts from the English language version of the text are given below:
"Before all else, I invite you once more to take part in this important event. The celebrated statue of Christ the Redeemer overlooking that beautiful Brazilian city will be an eloquent symbol for us. Christ’s open arms are a sign of his willingness to embrace all those who come to him, and his heart represents his immense love for everyone and for each of you. Let yourselves be drawn to Christ! Experience this encounter along with all the other young people who will converge on Rio for the next World Youth Day! Accept Christ’s love and you will be the witnesses so needed by our world"....
