WYD Blog: January 24 – The Pope’s arrival

From Luke Donnelly:

We finish our second day in Panama with 2 highlights.

1. Celebrating Mass at the catechesis site with Fr. Namora Anderson at the altar and distributing communion.

2. Being just in time to see Pope Francis and his motorcade pass the hotel on his arrival to Panama.

We also had the opportunity to spend an afternoon at the hotel relaxing in our rooms, catching up on washing and in reflection taking in all the experiences we have had to this point.

Tomorrow is a big day full of more catechesis, a visit to Omar Park, the official welcoming ceremony of Pope Francis and a concert at the Youth Festival.

What a wonderful opportunity it is we are having together.
