WYD Sydney 2008

Pictures courtesy of the BBC website here. I like the one on the right. Only youth and the sheer exuberance of being young could come up with slogans like this!

I remember when in Manila in 1995 for the WYD celebrations there, where the local organisers had come up with the chant for the then Pope: “John Paul II – We Love You” was heard everywhere. Not to be outdone, the pontiff was quick to quip back, “John Paul II – He loves you too!”. Sweet!

May the memories of these World Youth Days move us to “become the change that we wish to see in the world”.

“You’ll receive power” indeed.
