  1. Cynthia…
    I enjoyed seeing your blog this morning…as well as Bishop Cantu’s. All of you seem to be having a wonderful time. Bishop Cantu was right, it has been raining here. Thank you for the prayers for rain. As you know, we really did need it. Everything looks a lot greener now.

    Take care of yourselves and have fun. Pray for me and I will be praying for all of you.

  4. Cynthia,

    How are you doing? How is the weather there? Not to cold I hope. Well I miss seeing and you smiling face. I will be praying for all that are in New Zealand. Try everything once and the things you like twice.

    Take care and enjoy yourselves.

  9. It is great to see the new website and blogs. What happened to the other blogs from the groups that stayed in Brisbane? There were some wonderful comments about how the Holy Spirit had fillled the pilgrims especially as they visited a nursing home. these blogs featured the event sof the Brisbane group. Could they please be put back on?
    I looked for all of you on EWTN at the opening Mass and look forward to the upcoming events. May the Holy Spirit continue to fill all of you.

  10. The new website looks great. I am enjoying reading and viewing the pictures of the San Antonio groups on the picture pages and the blogs. I did watch the opening Mass twice on EWTN! I enjoyed reading in the blogs about the Brisbane group. I especially liiked reading how the Holy Spirit had filled four youth after visiting a special unit in the nursing home and how they asked to return to visit again. Could this and the other Brisbane blogs be returned to this site?
    May the Holy Spirit continue to fill alll of you.

  13. Cynthia,
    Our prilgrims stated that they were in contact with some of the youth from the Diocese. They are so excited, tired, but really in the Spirit. Father Thaddeus, Pastor of OLS is really helping our pilgrims, keeping them in prayer. God Bless Him.
    Blessing to you for your coverage. Keep up the good work.
