World Youth Day 2000
|Date||August 15, 2000
August 20, 2000
|Theme||"The word was made flesh, and dwelt amongst us" (John 1:14)|
The international level celebration of World Youth Day in 2000 was meant to coincide with the Jubilee Year proclaimed by Pope John Paul II, to celebrate 2000 years since the birth of Jesus Christ. This is also reflected in the theme for the celebrations.
|“||Yes, dear friends, Christ loves us and he loves us for ever! He loves us even when we disappoint him, when we fail to meet his expectations for us. He never fails to embrace us in his mercy.||”|
|— Pope John Paul II|
