The Pope is in Australia and tomorrow morning we leave Melbourne and fly to Sydney for the actual World Youth Day week. For those who are reading this back at home, please read this invitation from Pope Benedict to be with us in Sydney in Spirit:
"I invite the whole Church to share in this new stage of the great pilgrimage of young people across the world, begun in 1985 by the Servant of God John Paul II," he exhorted. "I am certain that from all the corners of the earth Catholics will be united with me and with all the young people gathered -- as in the Cenacle -- in Sydney, intensely invoking the Holy Spirit so that he will flood hearts with the inner light of love of God and of brothers, and of courageous initiative to introduce Jesus' eternal message in the diversity of languages and cultures."
Pray for us! Pray for the World Youth Day!
