I’m leaving on a jet plane

After much waiting, today is the day I fly to Madrid! I’m excited for what I’m about to experience and extremely blessed that I have been given the opportunity to experience it.

manufacturer included two Sundays and no Saturday...Maybe that's saying something about the day of the closing mass?)

Socks for almost all the days of the week. (You'll notice the manufacturer included two Sundays and no Saturday...Maybe that's saying something about the day of the closing mass?)

Although I have my schedule all planned out, I’m still not sure what to expect. But a line from the song, “Here I am, Lord,” stuck out today at mass: “I will go, Lord. If you lead me.”

As I navigate the streets of Madrid to experience all that World Youth Day has to offer the young Catholic pilgrims, I will remember that I’m not on this journey alone. Not in Madrid and not when I’m here in Toronto.

See you in Madrid!
