The Pope Arrives!

We just got back from watching the Pope drive by The Domain in the Popemobile.  We have a short amount of time before we have our evening prayer service.  It was fun in The Domain.  We got to talk to a bunch of people from all over and watch the Pope’s address on a large video monitor.  When he passed by, we were about 15-20 feet away.  There were lots of people all pressed in to get a glimpse, cheering and waving flags.  🙂  He zipped by pretty quick.  It was very exciting.  Then, we walked back to the hotel — Dave played his guitar and we all sang along the way.  Earlier this morning, we walked down to the harbour for dawn, there was adoration and relics of Mother Teresa, a tour of the Sydney Opera House, catechesis, and some shopping along the Darling Harbour boardwalk.  Tomorrow, there will be Stations of the Cross.
