Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We invite you to join us in a worldwide campaign of prayer, FIRM IN FAITH WITH MARY, praying the Rosary for World Youth Day on Saturdays from the beginning of May until WYD takes place in August. 

Since the first World Youth Day 25 years ago, the event has become a very important opportunity to awaken and deepen faith for young people around the world. This year´s World Youth Day in Madrid from August 16-21 can be a great moment of grace for the New Evangelization not only of young people, but also for all throughout Europe and the world.

Aware of the importance of this event, a number of Church organizations have joined together to call the whole Church to prepare for WYD and implore for its fruitfulness by praying the Rosary. The World Youth Day Organization in Madrid heartily endorses this initiative.
