Pope announces slogan for World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro 2013
Just a few days after announcing that World Youth Day 2013 will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, we now know the official slogan for the the next WYD.
Benedict XVI made the announcement during Wednesday’s general audience.
“For World Youth Day 2013 in Rio de Janeiro, the theme will be based on Jesus’ calling: ‘Go and make disciples of all nations.’ I ask for everyone’s prayers while this important event is prepared.”
Brazil is the country with the most Catholics. Aside from hosting World Youth Day in 2013, Rio de Janeiro will also host the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016.
