VATICAN: During Wednesday’s general audience, Apr 18, Panama’s Archbishop, José Domingo Ulloa gave the Pope the official poster for World Youth Day, Panana, 2019.

The Archdiocese of Panama reported via tweet that Archbishop Ulloa gave a poster for the upcoming World Youth Day to Pope Francis in Wednesday’s general audience.

The Pope made the comment that it is “Futurist,” and that “he likes it a lot.”

Archbishop Ulloa also gave Pope Francis a pair of tennis shoes decorated by young people living in the cities surrounding Samaria, in Panama’s San Miguelito district. Pope Francis received them, saying, “These are the shoes I will need when I go to Panama.”

About the poster

The poster was officially presented on Sunday, 15 April, during the 47th Eucharistic Congress in Panama whose theme was, Do not fear Mary, because you have found favour with God. Numerous Bishops, priests, and hundreds of young people from Panama and elsewhere in Latin America attended the celebration.
