A glimpse of the excitement at the Days in the Diocese that are preceding World Youth Day all over Australia:

Melbourne is a very exciting place during Days in the Diocese.

I too am astonished at the way in which the Singapore contacts came together. You are right to highlight the possibilities for the Church in SE Asia.

Yesterday I met a subsistance farmer from Cambodia who had never before left his home town - he has no English so we just smiled and bowed a lot. He is in Melbourne for WYD, but more significantly for the final profession of his son as an Oblate of Mary Immaculate. Who knows what impact this visit will have on him, his family, his son, and the faith in Cambodia? The OMIs are doing great work in SE Asia with two recent Laotian ordinations - I think these two young men who studied in Melbourne constitute 50% of the entire Laotian clergy.

As we were walking through the Pilgrim Welcoming centre at the Australian Catholic University after our presentation, Fr Anthony's swishing Dominican robes caught the attention of a group of Thai pilgrims. They stopped us and wanted to talk and then insisted we have our photo taken with them.

I am also impressed by the numbers of African nations represented - at least 50 from Zambia.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama.
