  • Matthew 5:7 I ask you, instead, to be revolutionaries, to swim against the tide ; yes, I am asking you to rebel against this culture that sees everything as temporary and that ultimately believes that you are incapable of responsibility, that you are incapable of true love. Do not be afraid to go and to bring Christ into every area of life, to the fringes of society, even to those who seem farthest away, most indifferent. The Church needs you, your enthusiasm, your creativity and the joy that is so characteristic of you. Pope Francis, WYD 2013 Brazil

  • Matthew 5:7 Official World Youth Day Krakow 2016 Website http://www.krakow2016.com/en/ Blessed are the merciful: they shall have mercy shown them - the theme for WYD Krakow 2016 In Rio de Janeiro, Pope Francis said: Look, read the Beatitudes: that will do you good! He asked the young people to read the Beatitudes again and to make them the action plan for their lives. Three elements are combined in the symbolism of the logo: the place, the main protagonists, and the theme of WYD. The logo of the World Youth Day, to be held in Krakow, illustrates the passage from the Gospel according to Matthew 5:7: Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy, chosen as the theme of the event. The image is composed of a geographical outline of Poland in which there is a Cross, symbol of Christ who is the soul of World Youth Day. The yellow circle marks the position of Krakow on the map of Poland and is also a symbol of youth. The flame of Divine Mercy emerges from the Cross, and its colours recall the image Jesus, I trust in you. The colours used in the logo blue, red and yellow are the official colours of Krakow and its coat of arms.
