The theme for the 34th World Youth Day, 2019 is, “I am the servant of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.” (Lk 1:38).
The verse comes from Luke’s Gospel account of the birth of Jesus being foretold, when the angel Gabriel came to Mary announcing that she would conceive and bear a son that she would call ‘Jesus’. Despite the initial confusion (“How can this be, since I have no husband?”), Mary gave her firm assent and trust to God by saying ‘May it be done to me according to your word.’ Know More>>>
