World Youth Day 2005 Approaches; Pictures and News Here

Next Wednesday, I'll be on a plane to Germany for World Youth Day 2005. For almost two weeks I'll be on my first trip out of the U.S., and I'll see Pope Benedict XVI once or twice. Almost all the seminarians from Kenrick-Glennon are attending this World Youth Day, and we will be visiting many other seminarians from around the world.

Throughout the week, I'll be posting pictures and blog entries from various places (when I can find a hotspot) throughout Holland and Germany. Please say a few prayers over the next few weeks for the half-million-plus youth and their chaperones who will be flying, driving, and even walking, to Germany!

Blogging will be light until then; I have much to do and little time to do it (or, as Willy Wonka would say, "We have so little to do and so much time to do it!"). The 2005-2006 school year at the Seminary starts soon after our return from Germany!
