World Youth Day (WYD) is one of the most treasured gift of Blessed Pope John Paul II to the youth. A few months from now, tens of thousand of young people and youth ministers from around the world will soon start their journey to Madrid, Spain for the 26th World Youth Day (WYD) celebration.

Sadly however, the financial requirement needed to attend the WYD celebration in Madrid is a great obstacle. Thus, only a few of our young people can attend the Madrid celebration.

Out of a fervent desire to bring this grace filled youth event to the Filipino youth, the Campus Ministry of the Archdiocese of Manila and the Jesuit Communications Foundation Inc of the Philippine Province of the Society of Jesus together with Ateneo de Manila University, Tanging Yaman Foundation, Inc., the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cubao and the ECY-CBCP are spearheading a WYD 2011 Madrid local celebration right here in the metropolis.

Guided by the WYD 2011 theme, “ Planted and Built in Jesus Christ, Firm in the Faith,” the event dubbed as “WYD 2011 Madrid to Manila: Kabataan, Nakaugat Kay Kristo”, will be held on August 20 – 21 at the Ateneo de Manila University.

We wish to invite you, your community and the youth to come to participate in this event.

Extravagant displays of devotion to Mary gets curtailed as world culture emphasizes the rational, scientific and technological aspects of life. There seems to be no more time for the more affective expressions of religion.

  Then, after a while, people get fed up with the absolutely rational and logical culture, and rediscover religion and the affective part of the human soul and its needs.

  And Mary is one of those.

Love and support for Pope Francis
The Church is certainly a human and historical institution with all that entails, yet her nature is not essentially political but spiritual: the Church is the People of God, Holy People of God making its way to encounter Jesus Christ. Only from this perspective can a satisfactory account be given of the Church's life and activity.

  Christ is the Church's Pastor, but his presence in history passes through the freedom of human beings; from their midst one is chosen to serve as his Vicar, the successor of the Apostle Peter.

  Yet Christ remains the center, not the Sucessor of Peter: Christ, Christ is the centre.

A Million Roses for the World
A gift of love, faith and goodwill from the people of the Philippines. Pope Pius IX once said: “Give me an army praying a million rosaries a day and we will conquer the world.” We are not out to conquer the world…but to save it for God to whom it rightly belongs.
