Here's a blog in German.

It's actually a blog written by three journalists of the Westdeutscher Rundfunk (the regional TV and radio station) and the Deutsche Welle (international German radio). They have all kinds of interesting reports from the WYD and its surroundings.

I just dropped off my son and husband at JFK, in the middle of horrendous thunderstorms. As far as the website says, they haven't taken off yet, making them an hour late...so far. At the airport, there was a mess of kids and priests and nuns; it was right about then that I really wished I was going.

The important instructions I gave them: make sure you both wear your B16 "The Cafeteria is Closed" shirts (designed by Fr. Bryce Sibley) and wave behind live interviews on EWTN, like good NYers.

Livi, the English-speaking blogger of St Bonifatius, is a friend of mine. She's also adorable, but I may be a bit biased in my assessment ;-)

I came across an interesting story concerning a group of young traditionalists at World Youth Day:

Traditional Latin Mass is given a new lease of life [at WYD]

I know one of the Angry Twins is headed there.

Travel was difficult, especially with the British Airways strike. My son was supposed to leave from Boston-London-Cologne. Ended up going Boston-Chicago-Frankfort-Cologne, on a different airline. Thank God he made it okay. He will be one of the volunteers.

One of the perks of his profession -- my brother Jamie is "attending World Youth Day on a more or less business related trip." Having blazed through Vienna in Three Hours, he's now blogging his first day in Cologne -- check it out at AdLimina.Blogspot.com.

Thanks for the links. You may want to include one form a would-be-delegate who never made it. :D

Small World Dept: Father Todd Reitmeyer has just settled into the little South Dakota parish wherein I made my First Holy Communion, First Penance, and Confirmation waayyyyy back in the day. How wonderful that he's "herding young cats" (and their chaperones) to WYD!!! His blog (a Son becomes a Father) is a hoot as he makes his way through Europe. He and his group will be followed with my prayers for a wonderful, holy time!

Teresa

Isn't WYD great?! There is such a thing as being too young for it though. I have to shoot my young boys the Glare of Correction when they fall into gales of laughter upon hearing a Catholic with a German accent say: "We should all be filled with the love of cheeses."

Clayton

There's finally some fresh content - both text and audio podcast - over at Fr. Willy's Coragio blog, now that he has returned from Europe. More to follow in the coming week...

Norm Blanchard

Can anyone tell me where I can obtain a video recording of the opening Mass, the Vigil and the concluding Mass of World Youth Days in Cologne Germany this past month ?

If anyone can help me with this search, I'd much appreciate it.

Richard Elson

Can anyone help with finding a video of the World Youth Day Vigil and Mass at Cologne?

well i was one of many blessed youths to attend world youth day in Koln, Germany. I went with a group thats located in my parish called the Neo catechumenal Way. this group is located around the world. many of you have heard of it before. But it was so great to see all these other communities there!!! from Italy, Spain, Australia, China, England and all of the other neo catechumenal communities from the United STates there!!!!!!!!!!!1.. you didnt feel alone for one bit of a second.. ! i especially LOVED the encounter with Kiko Arguello (the founder of the group) after the vigil with the pope. To see thousands and thousands of youth there. all singing the same songs but different languages, understand what we all go through.. and can relate to. was AWESOME!!!.. this was my second pilgrimage (other one in Canada) and my sisters 3rd.(jerusalem, canada, germany) and we Neo catechumens are excitied for the upcomming pilgrimage in AUSTRALIA BABY!!!!!!!!!!!..
