They seem like incredibly different reasons, and have varying intentions behind them, but you can’t...

  • In July of 2008, I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Sydney, Australia for World Youth Day (WYD) with Pope Benedict XVI. My church’s youth group prepared months in advance for the pilgrimage. We raised money by selling hoagies the last weekend of each month. Parishioners of the church were...
