120 days till World Youth Day in Sydney.

And via Zenit comes this announcement regarding the theme of WYD catechesis: The Holy Spirit and Missions

On Wednesday, July 16, bishops will guide youth in learning about the call to live in the Holy Spirit, drawing from Galatians 5:25. The following day, youth will consider the Holy Spirit as the soul of the Church, as explained in 1 Corinthians 12:13. Friday, July 18, will be focused on the theme of World Youth Day, taken from Acts 1:8. That day's catechesis will highlight the Holy Spirit as the principal agent of mission.

Sounds fabulous.

It is going to be very exciting to have the Catherine of Siena Institute playing a part even through neither Fr. Mike or I will be present. Our Australian team will be offering a series of short presentations on charisms and discernment at the Youth Expo and will also be representing us at two booths (Dominican and Archdiocse of Melbourne) at the Vocation Expo.

The WYD organizing team has announced that they are expecting 125,000 overseas visitors, despite the very high value of the Australian dollar. More visitors will come to WYD than to the 2000 Olympic Games. 21,000 are expected to come from the US.
