WYD watching

Like it - or not, depending on the reader - I love watching our dear Papa in action.

I have admitted way more than once here that I am a total sap, but I must know - am I the only one who tears up watching people kneel to receive his blessing?
A young Australian nun gave an address to Papa Bene at the St. Mary's altar dedication Mass today, the ending of it in German (which he appeared to appreciate) and afterwards knelt before him. She was radiant, not weepy - I was sniffling and wiping like an idiot. I'd be a blubbering fool if I ever had the opportunity to do that in person!
I don't really have much of an opinion one way or the other about WYD, other than to say if it generates even a handful of conversions - or vocations - then I'm all for it, Woodstock-y carnival atmosphere or not.

Aww, I would've loved to have seen that... :-)

I've got a couple of friends at WYD this year. I'm curious to see what they say when they get back...
