Its World Youth Day in Madrid!

The World Youth Day has begun today in Madrid! The youth of the world is excited in this rare event that only happens every three years. Last time it was in Sydney Austrailia which was the second World Youth Day of Pope Benedict XVI. Of course Filipinos are also part of this momentous occasion as it also hosted it back in 1995, which was also the largest attended papal mass was held in history. And there will be more historical moments that will happen in the next few days. I was wishing to be part of this Youth Day to meet more friends and also share stories that you can really find inspiring.

Though I won't be there, we will celebrate the worldwide event with a overnight vigil in Ateneo on August 20, 2011. This vigil is organized by the Campus Ministry Archdiocese of Manila. I hope to be in the next World Youth Day, wherever it would be. I will also be updating my Catholic Blog for any updates of the WYD. I do have some friends who went on the World Youth Day journey, I hope to have one soon. For now, I would like to see the highlights of what is called to be the biggest gathering of youth in the world.

By the way, in case you are wondering JMJ means Jornada Mundial de la Juventud or World Youth Day in Spanish.
