LISBON:
The theme song for the 2021 World Youth Day (WYD), Jesus said to Me: Levánta-Te! ¡Levántate! Get Up! has been released. WYD will be celebrated at the Diocesan and/or local Church level on the feast of Christ the King, November 21.

The song, produced and released by the Fundación Ramón Pané together with the Programa Cristonautas (Cristonautas Programme) is aimed at motivating young people to become Christian protagonists in this world, especially given the situation the Church is experiencing today.

Released in Spanish, English, and Portuguese, it was written by Fundación Ramón Pané’s Executive Director Bro Ricardo Grzona, FRP, using the Lectio Divina method.

“As we reflected on what might be needed for the upcoming WYD, we looked at our Church once again and we sought to understand, especially in the way that young people understand things. So, we did what the first evangeliser of America, Ramón Pané, did in 1494, we ‘inculturated ourselves’ and suggested contemporary rhythms”.

“We like to equip young people with ways to reflect and pray, as well as encourage them to participate in WYD at their local churches or dioceses this year, in preparation for WYD Lisbon 2023”. The Holy Father chose “Get up! I make you a witness to the things you have seen!” (cf. Acts 26:16), as the theme for WYD 2021. “This spiritual path, marked by the Pontiff, continues the reflection which begun during the 2019 WYD in Panama, and of the path initiated by the synod, particularly the Apostolic Exhortation Christus Vivit.”

“This theme is an invitation to young people to ‘get up,’ to hasten to live the Lord’s call and spread the Good News, as the Virgin Mary did after responding to her call: ‘Here I am’.”
