World Youth Day Reflections – 8/17/2011

Many of the sisters volunteered with the Sisters of Life and the Knights of Columbus at the Palacio de Deportes.  This is the main English Speaking site at WYD Madrid.  Catechesis sessions and confessions encompassed most of the morning.  El Parque del Buen Retiro hosted a Vocation fair attended by religious communities from around the world. Thousands of Pilgrims participated. A seemingly endless row of confessionals were set up along the center of the park. Thousands of pilgrims availed themselves of this opportunity to encounter God’s mercy in the sacrament.
