So here we are in Madrid. After another long journey weve made it to our final destination. And wow the atmosphere is electric!!!!
There’s chanting everywhere, people saying hola to everyone no matter where your from or who you are and of course everyone and it is absolutely everyone is willing to share there thoughts on the faith and what it means to them.
Having been here only a few hours now ive already got that exictment running through me and I know its a feeling that is echoed in the other Portsmouth diosece pilgrims, all of them are raring to go and cannot wait for the Pope’s arrival on Thursday. It’s such a rare mix of people out here and everyone is willing to chat and you should be surprised if no-one comes across to you to do so; in fact only an hour ago I was talking to a group from Australia all whom were keen to know more about England and of course what our faith meant to us and of course it was the same in our case.
It really is beginning to turn up several notches on the excitement dial and WYD heart beat in Madrid sure is beating faster by the hour!
