A young Korean woman who was recently baptized and entered the Catholic Church shared her testimony and explained that she decided to participate in World Youth Day 2023 in Lisbon, which is taking place Aug. 1–6, “for many reasons. But I really wanted to see the pope.”
Interviewed in English by ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish-language news partner, during the first day of WYD Lisbon 2023, the young woman, whose baptismal name is Justina, shared that she was recently baptized and that World Youth Day means a lot to her “because I don’t really know much about the Catholic community yet and I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to get to know about the Catholic religion a lot,” she explained.
“It’s just so amazing to see all the Catholic youth from all over the world gathered here together through the faith, by the faith,” she added.
