You might think a Pilgrim only need worry about the travel aspects of World Youth Day…passports, visas, luggage, what to pack…but there is so much more! Pilgrims for World Youth Day have to be physically ready with their belongings, and able to carry them around! Pilgrims need to be ready for long walks, a hike, and “sleeping under the stars”, which is a romantic way of saying out on the hard, cold ground! The physical preparation is just as important as the Spiritual preparation. Really, the two go hand in hand! Check out this article about preparing for World Youth Day!
Loving God, protect our Pilgrims as they begin this journey of preparation of spirit and body!
