At the conclusion of the International Youth Forum (Sassone, 22nd June 2019), Pope Francis announced the themes of the forthcoming World Youth Days:
2020 – “Young man, I say to you, arise!” (Lk 7:14)
2021 – “Stand up. I appoint you as a witness of what you have seen” (cf Acts 26:16)
2022 (Lisbon) – “Mary arose and went with haste” (cf Lk 1:39).
Let us continue the post-synodal journey with Mary, to have eyes and heart attentive to each young person that we meet, so as to grow together through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit and build together the common home where there is a place for all, especially for those at the margins of society.
