Clara, our CSI co-Director down under and czarina of our WYD team, sends word of an excellent group effort that will be covering World Youth Day from a multi-faceted Aussie perspective. Project Eye.

The contributors are all exceedingly sharp young women. Mary is one enthusiastic parish World Youth Day volunteer and will be giving the on-the-ground perspective. Trisha lost her husband in the 2004 tsunami and responded to that tragedy with a courage and creativity that resulted in being named Young Australian of the Year in 2006.

Mikayla Mernone is a member of our CSI teaching team at WYD and has a dramatic story of her own: surviving Guillain Barre Syndrome, which left her completely paralysed and in Intensive Care, unable to breathe. She recovered only to encounter a brilliant and wily Dominican priest (is there any other kind?) who changed the course of her life - personal and spiritual. (It is so cheering to know that we are linked in a common apostolate with someone of Mikayla's quality even though we have never met!)

Their coverage of WYD is going to be multi-media - blogging, video, photos, a compilation of MSM coverage as well - and all from a really knowledgeable and intelligent Australian perspective.

I know that I'm going to be tuning in to Project Eye on a regular basis. Check it out.
