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.  

O Holy Spirit, Love of the Father and the Son, with the splendor of Your Truth and the fire of 
Your Love, send Your Light to all young people so that, driven by their experience of World 
Youth Day, they may bring to the four corners of the world faith, hope and charity, becoming 
great builders of a culture of life and peace and catalysts of a new world.
