Pope invites youth to join him in Rio de Janeiro in 2013

Benedict XVI ;I am pleased now to announce that the next World Youth Day will be held in 2013, in Rio de Janeiro. Even now, let us ask the Lord to assist all those who will organize it, and to ease the journey there of young people from all over the world, so that they will be able to join me in that beautiful city of Brazil.” Speaking to the crowds of Catholic youth, the pope told them to share their experiences from World Youth Day in Madrid with their friends at home. Benedict XVII invite you to give a bold witness of Christian living to them. In this way you will give birth to new Christians and will help the Church grow strongly in the hearts of many others.” The announcement of Rio de Janeiro as the next host city was celebrated by pilgrims waving the Brazilian flag.
