Pope Francis is a living symbol of the concept of hope, justice and social consciousness. In 2023, Pope Francis will pay another visit to Portugal, namely during the World Youth Day that will be held from August 1st to 6th in Lisbon. This 6-day trip to Portugal will also include a visit to the Shrine of Fátima.
World Youth Day (WYD) is the gathering of young people from all over the world with the Pope. It is also a pilgrimage, a celebration of youth, an expression of the universal Church. Although its Catholic identity is clearly evident, WYD opens its doors to everyone, no matter how close to or distant from the Church they are.
Pope Francis is surely a deeply inspiring icon of the urgent need to change the world into a better place !
