    During the Holy Year of the Redemption 1983-1984, a large wooden cross stood in Saint Peter’s Basilica. On Easter Sunday, 22 April 1984, Pope John Paul II gave this Cross to the youth of the world who were represented by the young people in the San Lorenzo International Youth Centre.The Holy Year Cross immediately set out on its travels that brought it to Germany, France, Czechoslovakia, Italy, Luxembourg, Ireland, Scotland, Malta, the United States, the Netherlands, Korea, Poland, Switzerland and Australia. While it continued to visit dioceses all over the world, it was a special participant at World Youth Day in Buenos Aires (1987), Santiago de Compostela (1989), Czestochowa (1991), Denver (1993) and Manila (1995). After so much travelling in different places, the Holy Year Cross was in a bad state of repair, and so it was replaced by a copy in 1996. So in other words this is a comm. medal for the visit of the cross in Malta.
