SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA 2008
“To be “baptized” in the Spirit means to be set on fire by the love of God”
Australia opens its doors to WYD in 2008. It is the first multimedia world meeting: social networks are at the forefront. The theme is: “You will receive a power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses”. On July 20, during Mass with young people in Sydney, Benedict XVI warns against the evils of society and defines the young prophets of a new era: “Dear young friends, the Lord is asking you to be the prophets of this new era, messengers of his love, capable of drawing people to the Father and building a future of hope for all humanity”. The Church also needs this renewal. He needs your faith, your idealism and your generosity, in order to be always young in the Holy Spirit”.
