World Youth Day 2023: Spiritual Theme

The message from this week's bulletin is a follow-up to last week's. Last week focused on what will be happening at World Youth Day, while this week looks at the spiritual theme that undergirds all of the events: "Mary arose and went with haste" (Luke 1:39). This recalls Mary's prompt visitation to her cousin Elizabeth after she had conceived the Lord within her by the Holy Spirit, accepting to become the Mother of God.

You can read more about the theme and the official prayer for this World Youth Day in the PDF below.
