PREPARING FOR WORLD YOUTH DAY: RIO 2013
In light of the special missionary theme selected by Pope Benedict XVI for World Youth Day 2013 - "Go Make Disciples of All Nations" (Matthew 28:19) - the Pontifical Mission Societies is pleased to present a unique resource for young people, designed to help them prayerfully prepare for WYD ("Go"), to intentionally celebrate the day itself ("Make"), and to continue the experience as missionary disciples after WYD 2013 comes to a close ("Disciples").
Go, Make, Disciples is written for use by both groups attending the event in Rio with the Holy Father, as well as for those who will not travel to Rio but who are nevertheless called to respond to the Holy Father's specific call to all young people for WYD 2013.
