What was the WYD 2013 message for you?

October 24, 2013
Every WYD has a theme and WYD 2013 was no different. Matthew 28:19 “go and make disciples of all nations” inspired everything that happened in Rio de Janeiro this past summer. But Pope Francis was part of many events and celebrations. Outside of the four main World Youth Day events, he was part of some 13 non-World Youth Day events. And every time he spoke he had a specific message.
This week on a Weekly Edition of Perspectives, we’re asking, other than “go and make disciples of all nations” what was the WYD message for you?
So be sure to join Deacon Pedro and his two guests, two WYD Pilgrims, Oriana Bertucci, Director of Campus Ministry, Ryerson University and Catholic blogger and stay-at-home-dad, Josh Canning, as they remember World Youth Day 2013 in Rio de Janeiro and especially focus on all of Pope’s Francis’ messages during the week-long event.
Perspectives: The Weekly Edition, this Friday, October 18, 2013 7pm and 11pm ET (8pm PT) and
Sunday, October 20, 2013, 7pm and 11pm ET (8pm PT).
