Krakow: The City Of Mercy
World Youth Day is coming up next year, and once again our youth in the Neocatechumenal Way is preparing themselves to participate in this beautiful event started by St. John Paul II. Over 40,000 youths in the Neocatechumenal Way have participated in the last WYD in Brazil. The next WYD is in Krakow, Poland, the City of Mercy; and our youth are brushing up on their Polish. Our theme is Matthew 5:7 "Blessed are the merciful: they shall have mercy shown them." Poland is also the home country of Pope John Paul II who is now a saint. It is also the home of many saints. Father Krzysztof Szafarski, one of Guam's priest is also from Poland and is currently the pastor of the Santa Rita Church.
