World Youth Day

Been so many blessings in my spiritual life lately. Turns out myself and three friends made a last minute pilgrimage to World Youth Day. I never thought I would make it to one, nor did I know what to expect! What can I say other than it was an amazing event! If you ever have the chance to go, do so! It is an unbelievable experience and encounter with Christ. I do not know the final numbers, but camping out with 1 million plus people at a vigil service truly shows that the church is one unified body of Christ. The Holy Father's homilies and reflections, including the stations of the cross moved many to tears, including myself. Seeing a half mile of confessionals, adoration chapels and celebrating Mass with the Pope are all just part of the whole story.

I was interviewed by a group who promotes Manga Hero Anime books on the faith. Below is my brief interview. Their website for the trip with many interviews is
