WYD video wrap

Here are a few more news videos to give you an impression of the day in Sydney at WYD. 

The Holy Father met with leaders of non-Christian religions, had lunch with some young people and attended the Stations of the Cross.

There are protesters going around, like idiots, trying to distribute condoms to the pilgrims together with a new set of ten commandments.  Some people’s kids…. sheesh!

  1. Padre Steve says:

    These “protesters” really are goofy… It is really sad to see them make such fools of themselves. Let’s pray this female protester from the video clip finds herself converted one day and called to a cloister!

  2. Amy says:

    I loved the way the girl hands the paper back to the woman. She was like, “whatever, you fool.”

  3. Margaret says:

    “Getcha alternative commandments here!”

    Does that not sound like the beginning of a Monty Python sketch? I can just picture Eric Idle hawking such a thing and a full-suited John Cleese walking up to inquire about it…

    “idiots, trying to distribute condoms to the pilgrims” Father, you’ve often said that the evil one (he does not deserve upper case letters in his name) is alive and seeking to subvert our faith, and this is just another example of Satan luring people to do evil things. I agree with you that Satan is real; that he tempts people like this example; and that he seeks to lead people into damnation. All of us have to reject Satan and all of his works.

    I remember the same type of groups doing it for WYD Toronto. A lot of kids took the stuff and then threw them away at the next available trash can. It was really funny to look in a see all the “trash”
