Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This dissertation aims to present a historical, geographical, pastoral and missionary journey of what is one of the biggest events of the Catholic Church. Initiated by Pope Saint John Paul II in 1986, the World Youth Days are still today a worldwide phenomenon where millions of young people from all over the world seek to meet the successor of Peter. In this gathering of World Youth Days, the Church wants, on the one hand, to show its young face, and on the other hand, to present the face of Christ to young people, hoping to instill in them a new enthusiasm and rejuvenation to be Christians, and thus, to be protagonists and evangelizers.
