Firmes en la Fe: Firm in the Faith - The WYD in Manila

The 2011 World Youth Day has finished already in Madrid, Spain. The next WYD in 2013 will be in Brazil. While millions of young people from all over the world gathered in Spain to celebrate the Universality of the Catholic Church with the Pope, Manila also celebrated World Youth Day at the Ateneo de Manila University to be one with fellow young Catholics. Pictures featured here are courtesy of Dominic Gabriel Go, student of Ateneo de Manila and one of the participants of the WYD 2011 in Manila.

Manila once hosted the World Youth Day in 1995 during the papacy of Blessed Pope John Paul II. During that WYD, 4 million people were estimated to have attended the concluding mass at the Luneta Park, the biggest gathering ever for any papal event.
