"Cracow and Poland rejoice, as they will be, once again, a city and a country of youth": this is the greeting that card. Stanislaw Dziwisz sends from the Polish WYD website (www.krakow2016.com), which contains the main details of the organisation and operation of the 2016 meeting between Pope Francis and young people. Delegates of the Polish dioceses met in Warsaw on September 10th to start planning the event; now, the website proposes it will follow the organisation process step by step. On April 13th 2014, Palm Sunday, a group of over 100 young Poles will take over the WYD Cross in St Peter’s Square in Rome, along with the icon of the Virgin of Salus Populi Romani. The day after, such symbols will start their pilgrimage from Poznan throughout Poland, stopping about twenty days in each one of its 44 dioceses. "During that pilgrimage, we would like to evangelise in the streets, meet young people in the universities and in schools, go to places of grief, to orphanages, children shelters and prisons", Anna Milewska of the organising committee states. "Three years of service and a Church that has the face of the young expect us", monsignor Damian Muskus, president of the WYD 2016 Organising Committee, adds.
