Click To Pray is the official prayer platform of the World Youth Day https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcA1jQLJ6-Q

“In a few days, I will leave for Panama — [responding to shouts from the square] you too? —, where World Youth Day will take place from 22-27 January. I ask you to pray for this very beautiful and important event in the journey of the Church.

This week the Message for World Communications Day will be published, which this year contains a reflection on network communities and human communities. The Internet and social media are resources of our time; an opportunity to be in contact with others, to share values and plans, and to express the desire to be a community. Networking can help us to pray in community, to pray together.

This is why Fr Fornos is here with me: he is the international director of the Apostleship of Prayer. I would like to introduce to you the official platform of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network: Click to Pray. Here I will include prayer intentions and requests for the mission of the Church.

I invite especially you young people to download the Click to Pray app, continuing to pray the Rosary for Peace with me, particularly during World Youth Day in Panama.”
