World Youth Day- a reflection in photos.

Sydney has returned to normal this week but the memory of the visit of pilgrims from all over the world still echoes in the streets.  I thought it would be nice to reflect on the special time we shared with the youth of the world.  So here are some more photos:

High spirits from pilgrims at a bottle-neck on the journey home to Central station. This beach ball saved our sanity during the five minute wait.

We all really felt like this at the end of this wonderful week, spiritually renewed but incredibly tired!
