50,000 Mexican youth to participate in pilgrimage to Mt. Christ the King

.- More than fifty thousand young people in Mexico will participate in a pilgrimage organized by the Witness and Hope Movement to the Mountain of Christ the King located in Guanajuato in central Mexico. 

The pilgrimage, in its 25th year, is intended to encourage young people to be witnesses of the love of God, by defending life, the family and peace.

Organizers said they hope the pilgrimage will awaken in young people the desire to bear witness to their faith in every area of their lives. 

The theme for the pilgrimage takes its inspiration from the theme for World Youth Day 2008: ‘You will be receive the power of the Holy Spirit, who will come upon you and you will be my witnesses.”

The pilgrimage will culminate with a Mass celebrated by Archbishop Jose Guadalupe Martin Rabago of Leon.

This year participants will also commemorate 30th anniversary of the killing of two young people by anti-clerical masons who wanted to stop the pilgrimage. Organizers recalled that the two young people knew how to live and how to die for Christ the king, they died with his name on their lips and today they invite us to live for him, and if necessary, to die in witness to him.
