These Little Wonders

Off to Sydney as a Pilgrim!

“G’day Mate!”

Haha okay I shall not be lame and cut to the chase!

In a little more than 24 hours, I’ll be on my way to the airport to meet my fellow pilgrims. And soon after we’ll be embarking on our pilgrimage to Sydney along with millions of other Catholic youths from literally all over the world! The past couple of months really have flown by. I can’t believe we leave tomorrow!

So yes, I’ll be gone and back late in the night on the 22nd. Even with all the spiritual preparation that we’ve been doing, I still kinda don’t know what to expect from this pilgrimage. One thing I’m sure about, though, is that I want this to be a God experience – to really feel His presence and be inspired to share the light of Christ with the people around me!

The actual programme for WYD begins on the 15th, so from the 5th till a few days before WYD begins we’ll be conducting our Service Experiment in Blue Mountains. I hear we’ll be staying in what used to be a monastery, so I reckon it’ll be a very quiet and tranquil environment – wonderful for prayer and contemplation!

No points for guessing: I HAVEN’T PACKED. Haven’t even come close to deciding what bag(s) I should bring. Which also means I should probably not be sitting here. I SHOULD BE PACKING!

I really really hope I can leave everything that’s been distracting me and pulling me away from God right here. Haven’t even settled all my uni stuff yet. But I really cannot afford to take any of these worries with me to Sydney! If anything at all, this pilgrimage is gonna be between me and my God!

In the meantime, take care everyone (or anyone who still bothers coming here, actually)! Will be back recharged and all fired up with the Spirit!
