If you're curious below is a link to a list of the patron saints for this years World Youth Day in Rio. Many of these saints began to take up and live very devout holy lives at very young ages. The best example of this is our Blessed Mother (Our Lady of Aparecida), who at a young age said yes to God, giving birth to the One who would come for the salvation of many.
All of these saints epitomize the theme of this years World Youth Day, "Go Make Disciples."
Please pray for the WYD pilgrims and me as we make our way to Rio de Janeiro, my flight leaves this evening!
