    Pope takes themes for the next three World Youth Days from the Beatitudes



    The decision was made public today. For the diocesan World Youth Day of 2014, the theme is "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" (Mt, 5:3). For that of 2015, the theme will be "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God" (Mt, 5:8). And for World Youth Day in Krakow in 2016, it will "Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy" (Mt, 5:7).

    Vatican City (AsiaNews) - Pope Francis has decided that the themes for the next three World Youth Days will be taken from the Gospel Beatitudes.

    The decision was made public in a statement today. For the diocesan World Youth Day of 2014, the theme is "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" (Mt, 5:3). For that of 2015, it will be "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God" (Mt, 5:8). And for World Youth Day in Krakow in 2016, it will "Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy" (Mt, 5:7).

    During World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro, Francis called on young people, "with all my heart," to re-read the Beatitudes and turn them into an actual lifetime programme.

    The themes chosen for the next three WYD are meant to be the stages of a three-year spiritual preparation that will culminate in the international celebration with the pope in Krakow in July 2016.

    "Adopt a Christian from Mosul": A Christmas gift to survive winter

    Bernardo Cervellera

    As Iraqi troops advance in the Nineveh Plain and Mosul, a new wave of refugees could overshadow the fate of other refugees who found hospitality in Kurdistan. People need kerosene, winter clothes, aid for children, and money for rent. The campaign AsiaNews launched two years ago is more urgent than ever. Give up a superfluous gift to offer refugees an essential gift for life.

    P. Samir Youssef

    In a letter Fr. Samir Youssef describes the situation of refugees, exiled from their home for more than two years. They are closely following the offensive to retake Mosul, although their homes and churches "are for the most part" burned or destroyed. With the arrival of winter there is a serve lack of heating oil, clothes, food and money to pay for their children’s school bus. An appeal to continue to support the AsiaNews campaign.
