Cardinal Tagle to Caritas Youth: Come to Poland WYD

Filipino cardinal who is leader of Church’s charity organization releases video invite

Caritas president Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle has launched a video invitation to young people who work for Caritas organisations around the world to attend World Youth Day in Poland.

Pope Francis will join an estimated 2 million young people in Krakow for WYD from 25-31st July. The theme of WYD 2016 is: ‘Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy’ (Mt 5:7).

In the one-minute clip in which young supporters of Caritas in Poland also appear, Cardinal Tagle says, “History tells us that young people are the beating heart of society. This is true of the Church, it is also true of the service of charity that Caritas stands for.

“We need your energy, passion, idealism and dedication to put love into action – a love that serves, a love that will transform the face of humanity.”

An event is planned on 27th July in which Cardinal Tagle will meet the young people of Caritas in Krakow.
