A Year Ago
A year ago, today, the St George Dragaroos traveled to World Youth Day in Madrid.
A pilgrimage on which our group got separated, due to the crowds, on multiple occasions, experienced rioting on the streets, walked through 100 plus heat, to the point where one of our crew collapsed, and camped out with a wall of thunder storms accented with wind shear.
We also were blessed with Mass with our Cardinal Sean and Adoration with the Pope.
Classes that rocked. Singing, and being with 2 million other Catholics. A solemn silence in some of the most holiest of places.
