For the last week, we have been in Panama for the 34th World Youth Day. Since 1984, young people from around the world have been gathering together with the Holy Father in celebration of our Faith. This week, on a special edition of the SLHOUR we remember the first 34 years of World Youth Days, and we hear theme songs from Buenos Aires to Panama. This program first aired in August 2009 (and we keep adding WYDs). For more information about all World Youth Days, visit Salt + Light's WYDCentral.
