Uniting in Sydney

leave a comment »

Greetings fellow loved ones,

I apologize we haven’t been able to post anything for the past couple of days. As you may imagine, we are on the go all the time now that we are in the city. It is currenty the beginning of our last day for “Days in the Diocese.” The experience in Melbourne has been great. A couple of nights ago we celebrated our commissioning Mass of sending forth to Sydney. 22,000 people were expected; 600 priests served as Eucharistic ministers which allowed Holy Communion to be distributed in about ten minutes, and about 30 Bishops were in attendance, including Bishop Cantú. The commissioning Mass provided a great feeling of fellowship between all of the piglrims around the world.

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the official World Youth Day week and all four groups from San Antonio and all around the world will unite in Sydney. Please pray for our safe flight.  We are trying to stay warm.

-Cynthia
