Follow the WYD Cross Around the World On a GPS - Perspectives Daily

December 5, 2017
We begin today with some interesting news about the upcoming WYD Panama. Even though it is over 12 months away, organizers have announced this morning that the famous WYD Cross has been outfitted with a GPS so that its pilgrimage around the world to arrive in Panama, can be followed on their website.
The World Youth Day Cross, a gift from St. John Paul II, travels the world to represent God's love for the young. He dedicated the cross to the youth during Easter Sunday Mass during the 1984 Jubilee Year and it makes an appearance at every World Youth Day after a pilgrimage around the world inviting the youth to come. Again, you can visit their website  here to follow the cross or for more details on the upcoming event.
And since we’re talking about the upcoming 2019 World Youth Day, organizers have an update for you in the latest World Youth Day minute. Have a look.
Christmas is just around the corner and if you are in search of that perfect gift for that special person, you are in luck. For this month only, everything in our online store from our books to our videos are 25% off. Here are the details.
And finally, this December marks the end of a year-long anniversary celebration that commemorates the 175th anniversary of the Archdiocese of Toronto. Here are some interesting facts that you probably didn’t know about our great archdiocese.
That is all we have time for today. Join us again tomorrow when I bring you news and stories from the Perspective of a Catholic lens.
