Pope Francis has chosen the themes for the next three-year WYD cycle, which culminates with the international event scheduled for 2022 in Lisbon:
2020 – “Young man, I say to you, arise! Luke 7:14
2021 “Stand up. I appoint you as a witness of what you have seen.” Acts 26:16
2022 “Mary arose and went with haste.” Luke 1:39
These themes are connected with the most recent WYD in Panama, the synodal process that led to Chrisus Vivit.
