Final Mass of WYD 08

It was a lazy winter day with an afternoon rain here in Oz...

We decided not go out today ,, since we took the kids to disney on Ice yesterday.. Just stayed home and watched the Final Mass of the World Youth Day ,, It was good watching it and seeing the sea of people flocked at Randwick Race course in Sydney..
I vaguely remember the World Youth Day in Manila January 1995. Although I wasn't able to attend it,, It was a good feeling and proud for all Filipinos.. It was around 4 million people who attended it... and now having witness the influx of Catholics here in Australia is such a good feeling too, The estimated attendance was 500,00 the largest crowd ever assembled in Australia.. As you know that Australia is a multicultural country with people in different faith and religion , the crowd aside from the pilgrims from other countries is a  great indication of their Catholic faith is still alive and something to be proud of. 
It was good seeing the young people  enrich their Catholic faith and renew their spirits.. 
The next WYD will be on 2011 to be held in Madrid, Spain..
