Pope Francis will arrive by tram, accompanied by young disabled attendees. It is there he will give his first message to young people.

On Friday, Pope Francis will participate in the Stations of the Cross through the streets of Krakow. The Cross will be carried by members of different institutions dedicated to works of mercy, such as the Community of Sant'Egidio or the Missionaries of Charity.

July 30
The traditional Prayer Vigil will be held Saturday the 30th, 15 kilometers from Krakow. Pope Francis will pass through the Door of Mercy with young people from all continents, will hear the testimony of a Polish and Syrian woman and a Paraguayan man, and will pray during a time of Eucharistic adoration.

On Sunday, the Pope will celebrate Mass in the same place as the Prayer Vigil the night before. It is one of the most anticipated moments, because there he will announce the venue for the next World Youth Day.

The organization expects 1.5 million young people, including "also" 800 cardinals and bishops and 13,000 priests.
