World Youth Day 2013 - Official Prayer
O Father, You sent Your Eternal Son to save the world and chose men and women, through Him, with Him and in Him, to proclaim the Good News to all nations. Grant us the graces
necessary so that joy may shine in the faces of all young people, the joy of being, by the power
of the Holy Spirit, the evangelists the Church needs in the Third Millennium.
O Christ, Redeemer of humanity, the image of Your open arms on the top of Corcovado
welcomes all people. In Your paschal offering, You brought us by the Holy Spirit to an
encounter of sonship with the Father. Young people, who are fed by Eucharist, hear You in
Your Word and meet You as their brother, need your infinite mercy to run the paths of the
world missionary-disciples of the New Evangelization.
