World Youth Day underway in Spain

WYD 2011 is now underway in Madrid, Spain. We have some Mississippi Catholics there, joining more than one million young men and women from all over the globe (193 nations, to be exact) for a week of fellowship, prayer and worship. Pope Benedict is expected to arrive there tomorrow (Thursday) and will celebrate a huge open-air Mass on Sunday.

Please pray for all of the pilgrims who are taking part this week in Spain!
