In a Catholic News Service interview after the Mass, Poland’s primate, Archbishop Wojciech Polak of Gniezno, said he believed the Pope’s summons to clergy to be living writers of the Gospel represented a theological novelty in papal teaching.

World Youth Day (WYD) is an event for young people organized by the Catholic Church. The next, World Youth Day 2022, will be held in Portugal. World Youth Day was initiated by Pope John Paul II in 1985. Its concept has been influenced by the Light-Life Movement that has existed in Poland since the 1960s, where during summer camps Catholic young adults over 13 days of camp celebrated a "day of community".
The first World Youth Day gathering took place in Rome in 1986. The gatherings, held every three years, draw millions of participants from around the world.

He also noted that Polish youth have begun a prayer campaign for the success of the 2019 World Youth Day, and expressed hope that the prayer campaign and relic would be a bridge between Central American and Europe.
