We ask you to make the Message known in the dioceses, parishes and youth groups in your country (or in your movement, association or community) so that it can be part of the spiritual preparation of young people.
We would also like to remind you that the International Meeting “From Panama to Lisbon – Called to Missionary Synodality”, initially scheduled for 2-5 April, will now be held from Thursday, 19 November (with arrivals on Wednesday, 18 November) to Sunday, 22 November 2020 (Solemnity of Christ the King). In due course, we will send you a communication to give more precise information about the meeting.
We join you in prayer for young people all over the world.
