Leading by an example he hopes youth from around the world will follow, Pope Francis on February 11, 2018, registered to be a pilgrim for World Youth Day, which will be held in Panama in January of 2019.

It was the day that registration opened and the Holy Father was joined in the window overlooking St. Peter’s Square after praying the Angelus by two young people, who provided the computer tablet so he could register live in front of the crowd estimated at 30,000.

“We must prepare ourselves! I invite all young people worldwide to live this event of grace and fraternity with faith and enthusiasm, either by going to Panama or by taking part in their own communities,” the Pope said.
