World Meeting of Families 2

We departed some earlier today in order to arrive at Mass in time for co celebration today. I panicked upon arrival to see the priests processing in two by two. Fortunately, there is plenty of time to vest when their are 500 priests in procession. Highlights from today include hearing the confession of a homeless man on the street and listening to Cardinal Tagle speak. It would not surprise me to see him as Pope in the future. 

The big events of the day, however, took place after the conferences. The relics of St Maria Goretti are here, and we took time to pray with her. From there we hopped to the Cathedral to pray at the relics of St. John Paul II, Giana Molla, and the parents of St. Therese.  At the same place was a glorious grotto to Our Lady, Undoer of Knots. 

The insane traffic and closed streets required a short walk to get on the bus, but now, night prayer having been prayed, we are going to sleep.
