Relive WYD Rio through Salt+Light's WYD Central blog.
The most recent international World Youth Day was held in late July 2013 in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Over three million people from around the world descended onto Copacabana Beach for the final Mass of WYD that year. For those anticipating the next international event in Krakow, it may be good to see what happened in Rio as a benchmark for these incredible international gatherings."Walking through the crowds gathering on Copacabana Beach I would hear chants and songs in so many languages, all praising God, proclaiming their faith in Jesus Christ, and expressing their deep love for the Church and the Holy Father.In a world that at times proclaims that faith and Church are irrelevant, I could only say . . .REALLY! This certainly was not evident at this event" -- Bishop Nelson J Perez
