World Youth Day-First Two Days

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

World Youth Day Madrid 2011 is here.  The youth of the world is excited to meet the Lord, the source of joy.

Soon after arriving the friars went to Avila, to the place of Sts. Theresa of Jesus and  John of the Cross.  We celebrated the Mass at the Monastery of the Incarnation and walked around this revered town of the saints.

In Madrid we went to the Love and Life Center, which is for the English speaking pilgrims.  The Knights of Columbus and the Sisters of Life are hosting thousands who come here for events and time for quiet prayer.  There are two chapels: one for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament; the other to promote devotion to Our Lady.  Please continue to pray for the youth and organizers of the event.
