Pope Francis and World Youth Day (Quo Vadis, Pope Francis? Part 244)

World Youth Day (WYD) was such a blessing under Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI. But under Pope Francis, what has happened to WYD? While there certainly will be many good aspects as Catholic youth come together, there are also serious concerns as to what Catholic youth will be learning, since WYD under its present authorities seems tied up now to the globalist agenda.


* Promoting the UN’s 2030 agenda, which is very pro-abortion, pro-contraception, pro-gender equality, and pro-universal sex education.

* Promoting religious pluralism.

* Endorsing the “Global Tree Initiative” (GTI), which promotes other religions such as Buddhism.

All these are irreconcilable with the authentic Christian gospel. There is even moral wickedness, such as any support for abortion. The youth can be easily negatively affected, since the endorsements are from their Catholic Church herself, and bring moral confusion.


Catholic parents seek answers to why World Youth Day is promoting UN’s pro-abortion 2030 Agenda


'The reason for our request is that there is a serious risk that the Agenda 2030 and the Goals, promoted by the organizers of WYD, will have a negative impact on the youth attending WYD.'

A collection of Catholic parents in Poland have penned a letter to members of the Church’s hierarchy demanding this year’s World Youth Day (WYD) event in Lisbon stop its promotion of religious pluralism and the United Nations’ pro-abortion 2030 Agenda.


The January 3 letter, sent to Portuguese Bishop Américo Manuel Alves Aguiar – the head of the 2023 WYD Lisbon organizing committee – and pro-LGBT Cardinal Kevin Farrell – head of the Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life – begins with a request by “parents of young people planning to attend World Youth Day 2023” to have the event’s “Sustainability commitment” to the United Nations “Agenda 2030” and its corresponding “Sustainable Development Goals” removed as a “guiding element.”


The group of parents also mention WYD’s endorsement of the “Global Tree Initiative” (GTI) that promotes “other religions” such as “Buddhism” on its website.


“The reason for our request is that there is a serious risk that the Agenda 2030 and the Goals, promoted by the organizers of WYD, will have a negative impact on the youth attending WYD,” the parents wrote in a translated letter provided to LifeSiteNews.
