Time goes by, the expectation increases, things are getting in order ... and so World Youth Day Rio2013 gradually gains shape and strength. Each step is a reason to have ourselves filled with joy and enthusiasm in this short term until July 2013.
With the logo chosen (to be announced soon), now it is time to choose the lyrics of the WYD Rio2013 anthem. The contest ends on January 31st. This means, there are less than 30 days for young people (age and heart) send their suggestions. One of them will be sung by the Catholic youth from all around the world in the meeting with the Pope Benedict XVI during WYD.
The anthem and logo are the two main items that characterize the identity of the event. For WYD Rio2013, it was decided that they would be chosen through a contest; so that everyone would be given the chance to contribute directly to the construction of the World Youth Day.
"The lyrics of the anthem of World Youth Day Rio2013 will reflect the face of the youth of Brazil and the world; joyful young people who found the meaning of their existence in Jesus Christ, people who discover in His love what makes them happy and fully satisfied. This relation of friendship and intimacy with the Lord invites us to an authentic testimony of faith, with courage and creativity. So, being in the contest that will pick up the lyrics of the official anthem of World Youth Day is to allow this love becoming concrete and able to move all who will listen" highlights the text of the announcement of the competition.
