Day 4: 14th August – The Green Group
Saturday afternoon began with a relaxing swimming session at the open air pool: the group decided to go in together and cause a splash.
After dinner, we attended the Rosary Vigil at the Basilica de Santa Engracia, where all the groups from WYD staying in Zaragoza were and it was amazing. The Five Mysteries of the Rosary were read in a different language, as well as blessings from the Cardinal of Bordeaux and Archbishop of Zaragoza.
We all received a candle, which was lit, lighting the Square beautifully. We spoke to and exchanged gifts with young people from other countries, including Syria, Venezuela, etc. which was great fun!
After the joys of Saturday evening, we were met with an extremely impressive Mass, with the WYD Zimbabwe group and the music and dancing raised the roof! The Mass was conducted in 3 languages and we all engaged in various aspects of the Mass. The Zimbabwe group were very friendly and after Mass, we exchanged gifts, talked and took lots of photos.
