I urge all young men and women throughout the world to celebrate the next World Day of Youth, with particular intensity and hope.
SAINT JOHN PAUL II, 1986
Now that World Youth Day is coming back to Latin America, I ask you, the young people on the continent, to transmit the enthusiasm of your faith to your contemporaries from all over the world!
Pope BENEDICT XVI, 2012
WYD is for the courageous! Not for young people who are searching only for comfort and who withdraw whenever difficulties arise. Do you accept the challenge?
Pope Francis, 2018
