World Youth Day is the largest gathering of
young people in the world. Participants are
united in faith and celebrate Christ and His
Church through many events scheduled.
This year's World Youth Day is being held
this week, July 14-20 in Sydney, Australia.
It is Pope Benedicts first trip to Australia
where he will preside over a Mass estimated
to have over 500,000 people in attendence.
Can't make it to Sydney mate?
Here are some great sites that will give you
a front row seat to many of the events:
The official World Youth Day Website
eBenedict is a great site with live blogging of the event.
The Archdiocese of San Antonio has a pilgrimage blog. Good Job guys!
EWTN has live streaming video
Briton's The Catholic Herald
The official World Youth Day Song
It's pretty good except for the goofy "I love" t-shirt the
singer is wearing in the video. It totally distracted me
from the song.
