First Lady meets with Polish pilgrims in Panama
Seek friendship, advice and help from people who live by their beliefs and by what they say, said First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda during a meeting with Polish pilgrims in Panama for World Youth Day (WYD).
Over 700,000 people attended a Sunday mass celebrated by Pope Francis at the closing of the 34th World Youth Day. The Pope announced that the next WYD will be held in Lisbon in 2022.
Among the worshippers were over 3,500 pilgrims from Poland, the Holy mass was also attended by participants of the Independence Cruise, who arrived on the Polish sailing ship 'Dar Młodzieży'. Flags from over 150 countries, including Poland, flew over the event.
Poland's First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda met with WYD participants in Panama City's St. Luke's Cathedral.
"This sentence began the whole story which changed the world so deeply. And it's still changing. Also thanks to you. This is proved by your presence here at the World Youth Day in Panama. Bravo!" Agata Kornhauser-Duda said when referring to the motto of WYD "I am the servant of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word."
First lady met earlier with young guards from the Polish Scouting Association and thanked them for their altruistic service.
"Seek friendship, advice and help from people who live by their beliefs and by what they say. It is worth trying to be such a person: someone, who you can rely on," Agata Kornhauser-Duda pointed out.(PAP)
