Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy” (Matthew 5:7) is the theme of World Youth Day which will be held in Krakow from July 26-31, 2016. The event will be preceded by Dioceses Days, which will take place between 20th and 25th of July, 2016 all across Poland.

At the level of local churches, World Youth Day is held annually on Palm Sunday. The themes of the meetings have been: "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" (2014) and "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God"(2015).


While meeting the youth from all over the world in Rio de Janeiro, Pope Francis advised, "Look, read the Beatitudes: that will do you good!" He also asked young people to read anew the Evangelical Beatitudes and make them their life plan.
