From the afternoon of Saturday 26 January, the Fiesolan diocese organized a meeting in Loppiano together with the other dioceses, to follow the vigil with Pope Francis live from Panama and the closing mass of the 34th World Youth Day.

"HERE IS THE SERVANT OF THE LORD: HAPPEN FOR ME ACCORDING TO YOUR WORD" (Lk 1.38), is the theme of WYD which will take place in Panama from 22 to 27 January 2019.

In the video message in preparation for this event, the pope addressed the young people inviting them to look at Mary as she who "understood the secret of vocation: to go out of oneself and put oneself at the service of others", since "our life finds meaning only in service to God and neighbor ”.

There are "many young believers and non-believers - acknowledged the pope - who at the end of a period of study show the desire to help others, to do something for those who suffer". “This is the strength of young people, the strength of all of you, the one that can change the world; this is the revolution that can defeat the "strong powers" of this land: the "service revolution". Pope Francis wanted to reiterate that “putting oneself at the service of one's neighbor does not only mean being ready for action: one must also engage in dialogue with God, in an attitude of listening, as Mary did… From this relationship with God in the silence of the heart, we discover our identity and the vocation to which the Lord calls us, which can be expressed in different forms: in marriage, in consecrated life, in the priesthood ... All these are ways to follow Jesus. The important thing is to find out what the Lord expects of us and have the courage to say "yes".

This is the wish we make to young people all over the world, so that they will be able to discover their vocation.
