When the Archbishop of Lisbon asked Pope Francis what would be the theme of WYD 2023, Pope Francis, without hesitation, stressed the word "Evangelization".
Just as Mother May arose and went without haste to share the good news (Luke 1:39), we too, must arise and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others around the world.
The city of Lisbon, capital of Portugal is built on the banks of Rio Tejo River, attracts millions of tourists from around the world. The month of August is the best month to visit Lisbon with temperature averaging 82/67 degrees.
There are many attractions in and around Lisbon, the best are: Jeronimo's Monastery, Belen Tower, St. George Castle, the Tile Museum, Lisbon Cathedral and many more. Fatima is only 79 miles away.
