Participations for World Youth Day 2008

My community has some activities leading up to WYD 2008. Every Wednesday afternoon we doing a holy hour on the Cryp St.Mary-Cathedral. Every Friday we have evening prayer with the young people in Dymock Building,in the city. And usually we have a World Youth Day's prayer in every official prayer time. This is that prayer:

The Prayer for The World Yout Day 2008

God Our Father,
we concecrate to you the World Youth Day in Sydney in 2008.
Giude and protect Pope Benedict and all leaders of the Church.
Inspire and direct all those leading and planning the World Youth Day .
Unite and protect them by your fatherly care.

Lord Jesus Christ,
before you ascended to the Father, you promised to send your Holy Spirit
so that we might be your witnesses to the end of the earth.
Bless and multiply the effort and all our staff and volunteers.
Help us to take up our cross and follow you under the heavenly sign
of the Southern Cross.

Holy Spirit,
pour out your grace on this Great South Land of the Holy Spirit
and grant to us a New Pentecost.
Make of this land a true place of welcome for the young people of the world.
Grant to those young people who come conversion of life, a deeper faith, and love for all.
Enable them to build a new civilisation of life, love and truth.
Make them true witnesses to your power and grace.

Our Lady of the Southern Cross,
Help of Christians - pray for us,
Blessed Mary MacKillop - pray for us.

"You will recieve power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses"
(Acts 1:8)
