World Youth Day 2019

World Youth Day is underway in Panama: http://worldyouthday.com has all the latest information.

World Youth Day 2019

"I am the servant of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word. (Lk 1:38)."

From Archbishop Smith:

WYD Pilgrims

World Youth Day 2019 - Lots of enthusiasm, to say the least! This was my experience of the pilgrims of this Archdiocese who left this week for World Youth Days in Panama. We gathered Saturday afternoon to celebrate Eucharist in a final moment of preparation, and at the end of mass I invoked a special blessing upon them to send them on their way.

They are enthusiastic, yes, but also deeply and prayerfully serious about this pilgrimage. As well they should be! World Youth Days are moments of encounter with the Lord Jesus in the mystery and communion of his Church. It is a joy for the young pilgrims to be together with hundreds of thousands (!!) of their generation, who are enthusiastic about their Catholic faith. It is thrilling to be in the presence of the Holy Father. At the heart of it all is an encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ.

We can expect the same to arise from this year's event, particularly in light of the theme chosen by Pope Francis for the gathering: "I am the servant of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word. (Lk 1:38)." These are the words by which the Blessed Mother gave her assent to the divine summons communicated by the angel Gabriel. They remain the perfect expression of the "yes" that lies within the heart of every disciple of the Lord.

Let's be sure to keep our Archdiocesan pilgrims in prayer while they make this faith-filled journey. We can all look forward to welcoming the new enthusiasm they will surely bring to the mission of our local Church.

Official Prayer for World Youth Day 2019

Merciful Father,

You call us to live our lives as a way of salvation. Help us to recall the past with gratitude, to embrace the present with courage and to build the future with hope.

Lord Jesus, our friend and brother, thank you for looking upon us with love. Let us listen to your voice as it resonates in the hearts of each one with the strength and light of the Holy Spirit.

Grant us the grace of being a Church that goes forth with vibrant faith and a youthful face to communicate the joy of the Gospel. May we help to build up the kind of society we long for, one where there is fairness and fellowship.

We pray for the Pope and the bishops; for young people; for all those who will take part in World Youth Day in Panama and for those who are preparing to welcome them.

Our Lady of Antigua, Patroness of Panama, help us to pray and live with generosity like yours: “I am the servant of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word” (Lk 1:38).
