Argentine-born Francis was wrapping up a week-long visit to Brazil, the world’s most populous Catholic country, on his first overseas trip since his election in March.
The choice of Krakow is in honor of John Paul II, who hailed from Krakow and who started the World Youth Day (WYD) events during his charismatic papacy.
“We express our gratitude to the Holy Father for this decision,” said Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, the archbishop metropolitan of Krakow, in a statement released here. “We look forward to your coming and to the arrival of so many of our young friends, with great anticipation and joy.”
The first official WYD was held in 1986, although it had been preceded by two previous mass gatherings of young people from around the world in ரோம்.
The next was held the following year in the Argentine capital ஏர்ஸ், where Francis was archbishop before he became pope.
