The young Catholics of the world are preparing for World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro this upcoming July. Pope Francis has already marked this event as his first trip back home to the Western Hemisphere. Youth Ministers, Priests, Religious and millions of vibrant young people will fill the streets of one of the poorest cities in the world in order to celebrate the decision they made to follow Jesus, even unto the ends of the earth.

On the eve of this celebration, a small group of people has prepared something special for our Catholic youth and anyone else who cares for them. A new digital apostolate called is launching today, June 10th, and its mission is to help our young make the eternal decision of becoming addicted to being Catholic.

It consists of formation courses, Q & A forums, blogs and social media outlets that provide our young soldiers of Christ with the basic training they need to answer their most profound questions, to satiate that constant longing for the Divine and to ultimately discover the immense joy of being Catholic.” About page

While confronted by the numerous sinful distractions the world throws at them, the youngest members of our Church will be satiating their souls while making their pilgrimage alongside our Vicar of Christ in Rio.

  1. What is World Youth day?

    .”…… The celebration is hocus. The youth celebrate themselves: “We are the Youth, the future of the world!” “We are the light of the world and salt of the earth.” The aim of evangelization is a charade: instead of bringing others to the truth of the Catholic faith, the youth hug and “exchange experiences” with persons of all religions and creed. Facilitators of the event are not even required to be Catholic.

    The aim of unity is also a charade since it is based on a false premise that all religions lead to salvation, that all gods of false creeds can be adored alongside one true God. In Canada, for example, Catholics attended pagan Indian ceremonial rites to the “great spirit” which were referred to as “traditional prayer services” (p. 90).

    Another item considered irrelevant at WYD is the moral code of times past. Mrs. Ferreira notes: “At Rome, dubbed a ‘Catholic Woodstock,’ bare shoulders and midriffs and micro-minis were allowed in St. Peter’s, and the papal Mass featured dancing girls in wispy costumes.”
    In Toronto, pilgrims “stripped down to bikini tops and frolicked in a fountain at a main venue” (p. 64). On the night before the papal Mass, the youth – male and female together – were camped out in tents or sleeping bags for what the secular press has dubbed as the “Papal slumber party” (p. 65). What happened in some of those tents can be left to the imagination of the reader. Certainly, it was to avoid this kind of scandal that Catholic morals always – until Vatican II – forbade non-married men and women to sleep in such conditions. …..”

  2. Looks like Woodstock rallies:………… Is this the addiction you want for your youth?
    “La Voz del Desierto, “The Voice of the Desert”, is a contemporary Spanish rock band that consists of seven members, three of whom are (Novus Ordo) “priests”. The band was formed at a diocesan seminary in Spain when the three “priests” were still theology students. They performed at World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid. In other words, they have official Novus Ordo approval.

    Behold the Novus Ordo “Priesthood”…”
