In July 2016, inspired by Pope Francis’ chosen theme “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy,” Catholic youth from around the world descended on Kraków, Poland, for World Youth Day. These pilgrims traveled in the footsteps of St. John Paul II and other great saints of Kraków, discovering the rich heritage of their Catholic faith. This poignant and inspirational film captures the World Youth Day experience like never before. Follow youth on their journey with Pope Francis, hear their personal testimonies, and experience with them the highlights of the Knights of Columbus-sponsored Mercy Centre at Tauron Arena Kraków. World Youth Day Krakow: A Pilgrimage of Mercy reveals the essential truth of World Youth Day — that amid hundreds of thousands of young people breaking out in song and dance, behind the panoply of joyful exuberance and festive celebration, young minds are discovering an appreciation for the Universal Church, and young hearts are being transformed by the Gospel. Includes exclusive footage of the Night of Mercy Youth Festival, featuring music from Matt Maher and Audrey Assad, as well as a spiritual reflection by Bishop Robert Barron.
