Memories of Madrid


Well, here it is — another day. I don't know about the others but I am still trying to catch up. It's been interesting for me to have the time to process the pilgrimage by sharing these photos with you even after the trip has come to its end. Many of the events heightened our awareness of God's mercy and grace in our lives. And the fruit of that awareness will be with us in the weeks to come.

Let's take a look at some of those events—
The FW-SB pilgrims wait eagerly for entrance into the K of C's Love and Life Center to celebrate the American Mass with Cardinal George and Archbishop Dolan.

Archbishop Dolan from New York gave the homily at the Mass. He was an awesome speaker!

A fun spot during the pre-Mass worship music was when the cameras caught our group on big screen! We had some hams in green!

Archbishop Dolan teased our own Deacon Jacob and said he would make a good priest and bishop!

The crowds were unbelievably huge and enthusiastic for the Stations of the Cross.

The WYD cross traversed the city of Madrid during the Stations.
Can you see Bishop Rhoades among the other bishops who concelebrated the American Mass?

Pope Benedict XVI drives by! So exciting!

These happy pilgrims just saw the pope. Have you ever seen bigger smiles?

These puppets drew the crowd's attention.

Following the American Mass Bishop Rhoades took the time to visit with his flock.

Pilgrims enjoyed the music of several bands before Mass.

Frankie was interviewed by the WYD paper and shows us his article. He's famous!!!

See you tomorrow!
