Since this week contains all the activities leading up to Catholic World Youth Day, and the Pope’s visit to Sydney, I thought it might be interesting to hear from anyone who has had any sort of experience or encounter to do with that event.
My main encounter so far, as a non-participant, is to pour over the details of the changed traffic arrangements in Sydney to see if I can get to various appointments easily or not. 🙂 Plus Sydney does seem to gaining an extra festive air to it again, as it does any time a big event arrives, seeing pilgrims with brightly coloured bags wandering around, and people getting ready for the various activities. I have to admit I enjoy that effect. The weather is helping too – right now its a beautiful, classically sunny Sydney winter day. Gorgeous.
So if anyone has any comments on how the event is affecting them, or their participation in the event, or their opinion as events unfold over the coming week, it would be interesting to hear from you.
