The Pope's Message for the 27th World Youth Day in Brazil

Dear young friends,  I am happy to address you once more on the occasion of the 27th World Youth Day.  The memory of our meeting in Madrid last August remains close to my heart.  It was a time of extraordinary grace when God showered his blessings on the young people gathered from all over the world. Now we are looking forward to our next meeting in Rio de Janeiro in 2013, whose theme will be: “Go and make disciples of all nations!” (cf. Mt 28:19).
