.- The World Youth Day cross and icon are now on display in the Cathedral of Madrid.
Cardinal Rouco Varela of Madrid led a prayer vigil at the cathedral on July 18 and reminded the young people gathered that only 30 days remain until the historic event.
He encouraged them to be “well-prepared” for Wold Youth Day by making a good confession. He said the event will be a milestone for the Church in Spain.
“In order for (World Youth Day) to have great significance in our journey toward heaven, God allows us to taste the grace and the glory of heaven,” Cardinal Rouco Varela told the young people.
The Cathedral of Madrid is the final stop for the World Youth Day cross and icon, which have traveled to dioceses across Spain over the last year in preparation for the event.
