The Vatican has announced the themes for the next three World Youth Days. All are taken from the Beatitudes:

29th World Youth Day, 2014
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Mt 5:3)

30th World Youth Day, 2015
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God” (Mt 5:8)

31st World Youth Day, 2016 (Krakow, Poland)
“Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy” (Mt 5:7)
