POPE TO VISIT POLAND FOR WORLD YOUTH DAY - all invited to join
VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Pope Francis said he looks forward to his upcoming visit to Poland for World Youth Day from 27-31 July, and that his visit will be inspired by mercy during this Jubilee Year.
The "blessed memory of St. John Paul II, who instituted the World Youth Days and was the guide of the Polish people in its recent historic journey toward freedom," will also serve as an inspiration, the pope said in a July 19 video message to the people of Poland.
The pope will join hundreds of thousands of young people from around the world during his July 27-31 visit to celebrate World Youth Day.
The 2016 World Youth Day celebration will mark the 30th anniversary of when St. John Paul II, the former archbishop of Krakow, invited bishops all over the world to hold an annual event for youths in their dioceses. The first international gathering, now held every two or three years, was in 1987 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where Pope Francis was born and ministered before becoming pope.
In his video message, the pope said he blessed young people traveling to Krakow and was "praying that it will be a pilgrimage of faith and fraternity."
"I am very anxious to meet you and to offer the world a new sign of harmony, a mosaic of different faces, from many races, languages, peoples and cultures, but all united in the name of Jesus, who is the face of mercy," the pope said.
Addressing the people of Poland, the pope said that despite the trials and difficulties throughout their history, the Polish nation "has persevered through the power of faith, upheld by the maternal hands of the Virgin Mary."
"I am certain that my pilgrimage to the shrine of Czestochowa will immerse me in this proven faith and do me so much good," he said.
Pope Francis said he looked forward to meeting the bishops, priests, men and women religious and the laity, particularly emphasizing the importance of marriage and the family in society.
"The moral and spiritual 'health' of a nation is seen in its families. That is why St. John Paul II showed such great concern for engaged couples, young married couples and families. Continue along this road," the pope said.
In a news conference July 20, Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi, Vatican spokesman, said that among the highlights of the pope's visit will be his stop at the concentration camps of Auschwitz and Birkenau.
More than 1 million people, including St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross and St. Maximilian Kolbe, died in those two camps alone, he said.
The pope will also meet with 10 Holocaust survivors and will visit St. Maximilian Kolbe's cell. Father Lombardi noted that the pope's visit will coincide with the 75th anniversary of the Polish saint's death sentence.
Father Pawel Rytel-Andrianik, spokesman for the Polish Bishops' Conference, told journalists that more than 335,000 young people have registered to attend the World Youth Day. He also told journalists that an estimated 1.8 million people are expected to attend the World Youth Day's final Mass July 31 at "Campus Misericordiae" ("Field of Mercy").
Pope Francis has arrived in Poland at the start of his 15th pastoral visit abroad. During his 5-day visit the Pope will attend the World Youth Day celebrations taking place in the southern city of Krakow and also visit the former Nazi concentration camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
The Alitalia Airbus A321 on which he is travelling touched down at Krakow airport just before 16 hours local time on Wednesday.
He was accompanied on board the plane by a Pontifical Delegation and some 70 members of the press.
Before setting off for the airport in Rome, a group of young refugees of different nationalities, nine boys and six girls, gathered at his residence in the Vatican to say goodbye and wish him a good journey.
Other highlights of the Pope's visit to Poland include the celebration of Holy Mass at the nation's holiest shrine at Jasna Gora, a prayer at the Shrine of Divine Mercy and the celebration of Mass together with the young people from across the world who have travelled to Krakow for the 31st World Youth Day .
Pope Francis is due to return to the Vatican on Sunday, July 31.
Right now, nominations are open in Pro-Life International (PLI) for First Secretary and Second Secretary.
I just want to remind everybody that this multiregional alliance still exists. Anybody who is a member of a PLI region is eligible to run. Each region will get one vote, cast by its representative.
Here are the current secretaries and representatives:
Catholic -- Frustrated Franciscans
Coalition of Catholic States -- Wagafraga
International Republican Union -- vacant
League of Christian Nations -- The United Pacific Territories
Right to Life -- United massachusetts
The League of Conservative Nations -- vacant
To appoint a new representative, all your region has to do is send somebody over to the PLI forums.
Ideally, the new secretaries will work with the Diplomatic Assembly to organize another pro-life conference before the end of the year. Our last conference was held on August 4-11, 2013. There were 28 participants and 425 posts (or 61 posts per day). It was hosted on the regional forums of Right to Life.
Apologies for my extended absence, friends. The terrible month of June gave way to a better month of July, so it's been busy.
Link to the CRCA
Due to there being no members currently of the Unaffiliated Conference, the Catholic Conference shall appoint an 'Agreement Convener' to commence their post for the remainder of August as well as September.
Article 4C states: When administering the CRCA, the respective Conference shall appoint a nation from their Conference as 'Agreement Convener', who shall be the Executive Officer of the CRCA, in anyway that Conference decides.
Could the Founders/Regional Representatives please inform me when a nation has been selected for 'Agreement Convener'. The swifter this is done, the quicker a Catholic Agreement Convener shall be in place.
ATTN: CRCA - MEMBER REGIONS
*Catholic Conference Regions, please remember to elect a new Agreement Convener
Members of the CRCA,
I propose 2 changes to the CRCA Agreement based on administrative areas which I have become aware of.
I propose to amend Article 3 C
To read: C)^ Member Regions are encouraged to be Supporting Regions of the 'International Refugee Centre - IRC'.
*I propose this after I was informed by The Community of Christadelphians that the CRRN's name has changed to the IRC. This is merely administrative and has no impact on Member Regions.
I propose the addition of a clause in Article 3
To read: F)* Member Regions are required to display the CRCA Factbook in their World Factbook Entries (WFE)
*This will increase the visibility of the CRCA and ensure all nations in the region are aware of their membership in the Agreement.
Please vote as such:
