Test Your Knowledge Of World Youth Day With Our Quiz!

by Evangelization, Holy Father, Mass

Millions of young Catholics are gathering from all corners of the world to celebrate our faith this week.  There is no doubt that many will experience conversions, form much needed spiritual friendships, and feel God’s love in a whole new way. There will be an abundance of joy, songs of praise, and prayers of thanksgiving.  World Youth Day seems to be just the thing that our youth need in a world that many times appears to have grown hopeless and full of violence. It is because of the prophetic vision of one our most beloved Pope’s that this great event has come to fruition at a time when youth are desperate for faith experiences that shed light on the darkness.

Pope Francis gave us these words of wisdom in regards to WYD, “I meet so many young people who say that they are tired of this world being so divided, with clashes between supporters of different factions and so many wars, in some of which religion is being used as justification for violence.  We must ask the Lord to give us the grace to be merciful to those who do us wrong.  Jesus on the cross prayed for those who had crucified him: “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do” (Lk 23:34).  Mercy is the only way to overcome evil.  Justice is necessary, very much so, but by itself it is not enough.  Justice and mercy must go together.  How I wish that we could join together in a chorus of prayer, from the depths of our hearts, to implore the Lord to have mercy on us and on the whole world!”

No matter how you did on the quiz, we ask for two things.

Pray

Those pilgrims in attendance need our prayers of support.  Remember them in prayer this week.  Make it a special intention to ask for an outpouring of joy over our Catholic youth. Ask the Lord to help them grow in wisdom, knowledge, and the boldness to face a culture that often opposes them.
