Religion News Service Posts CUA Student's World Youth Day Article

Hannah Welz, a junior at The Catholic University of America, traveled to Brazil with a number of other students from the faithful Catholic university to Brazil for World Youth Day.

She credited CUA for helping her mature in her faith and wrote movingly of her trip at Religion News Service:

In an age when things might at times seem hopeless, it is important for us to be reminded not only of the role we play in the world, but also of the continual presence of the Lord. The theme says it all. We are to go out into the world — to our homes, our schools, our workplaces — and bear the good news to everyone we meet. But just as the disciples were not alone in their mission, so too we have a constant companion in Christ.

In calling together the youth of the planet, World Youth Day inspires and encourages us to support each other on our missionary journeys. We are all pilgrims together, and we know that once we have completed our pilgrimage, our work is really just beginning!

World Youth Day provides an opportunity for us, the young people of the planet, to celebrate our faith in the best ways we know how — through the sacraments, prayer, music, and dancing, and by meeting new people from around the world. It is a unique opportunity for us to express our joyful faith and hope in the Lord together.

AFP posted video and interviews with CUA students, including Hannah Welz, as they prepared to travel to join WYD and see Pope Francis.
