This week there will be no posts here at T&P. At home, we are preparing for Pope Benedict’s arrival in Madrid for the WYD 2011.
More than 1 million and a half are to arrive this week to celebrate this great event for all the Catholics. There are people from India, Yemen, Ethiopia, Poland, USA, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Italy, Portugal, Chile, Mexico, etc, etc. The organization has even scheduled events regarding religious persecution with both a photo-exhibit and some speeches by people who have suffered persecution.
Tu est Petrus, et super hanc petram aedificabo Aeclessiam meam (St. Matthew, 16, 18).
Have a very good week you all! God Bless!

God bless hun..!!!
Thanks!! Well, there have been some problems today with some guys who were demonstrating against the WYD (you know, they are against the “public funding” of the event, when the event has no public funding, but of course, Catholics are not well considered by some lefty press here… 😆
They even tried to expell the pilgrims from the Puerta del Sol because “it was theirs” (the demonstration has been authorised… but I don’t think that gives them the right to consider it their own… 😛 ).
Anyway, the Pope is arriving tomorrow and I’m going to see the photo exhibit about persecuted Catholics tomorrow.
You would have added the following versicle to Jesus’ words: “… et portae inferi non praevalebunt adversum eam” 🙂
