Panama City, Panama, Jul 4, 2017 / 07:46 am
On Monday the Archdiocese of Panama released the official theme song of the next World Youth Day, to be held in Panama Jan. 22-27, 2019.
Reflecting the Marian theme of the upcoming international youth gathering, the song is named for the passage in Luke where Mary agrees to be the Mother of God with the words, "Let it be done to me according to your word."
The song was introduced at a special event on July 3 by Archbishop José Domingo Ulloa Mendieta of Panama.
"We are excited to make it available today to the young people of the world, so that when they sing, they prepare themselves joyfully and ready to let themselves be transformed by God," he said.
