Pilgrims ride the WYD wave @ Bells

Early this morning the Cross & Icon were welcomed to Bells Beach, one of Australia’s premier surfing locations. Locals joined with a bunch of keen surfers for a prayer service on the sand, where we pondered on God’s incredible creation which surrounded us.










Next stop of the journey was a combined high schools event in Geelong. We began at St Josephs College where WYD pilgrims from various local schools came together, and then processed the Cross & Icon down Sacred Heart College. Once again it was great to hear students share their excitement about their trip to Sydney for WYD, and how privileged they felt that this Cross & Icon were at their school after travelling all over the world.

I really feel for the pilgrims of the High School. If I was one of the students of the school I would have felt really privileged to have the honor of touching the cross and icon first hand. The students will remember the experience for there whole life and will cherish the moment for eternity.
