WYD Blog: January 25 – Enter the Popemobile
From Luke Donnelly:
Following catechesis the Pilgrims and His Grace walked to Omar Park for the vocations fair, garden of reconciliation and music.
The confessionals were a beautiful image lining the hill. The park had a sense of peace.
Tonight we experienced a once in a lifetime opportunity coming so close to Pope Francis.
We opted for a shady patch with an ocean breeze for the Welcome of the Pope Ceremony this evening.
Whilst this was a highlight of the day it were the little moments like lunch in a bank carpark, sharing water bottles with toddlers and getting to know each other in supermarkets and the hotel that really make WYD the beautiful experience it is.
Where will you find Christ today?
