Go on an e-pilgrimage

Apparently it's only 545 days until World Youth Day in Sydney. That seems like an awfully long time to me. Even so, the Archdiocese of Sydney is getting geared up on the WYD website inviting young people to do an e-pilgrimage. It looks like it's going to be a monthly invitation to do a spiritual pilgrimage away from our daily lives into an area of teaching. This month the very youthful looking Dominican auxiliary bishop from Sydney, Bishop Anthony Fisher, who is organising WYD on behalf of the Archdiocese of Sydney, leads us in thought about sexuality, marriage, and the Eucharist. There is a great 'message of hope' written by the bishop, a catechesis, a Scriptural meditation, an excerpt from Deus Caritas Est, a testimony, the life of a saint, a place of pilgrimage and a news update on preparation for WYD. It looks like a good thing to use as spiritual preparation, whether you're thinking of going to WYD Sydney or not. You can find the e-pilgrimage page here.

A bit off-topic, but I wish I knew more people going to WYD08.

I love the epilgrimage newsletters. A youth group I started last year is planning to go to WYD08, and so as well as the fundraising we used the epilgrimage newsletters to do some spiritual preparation as a group. The group really got a great deal from this.
