Grace Abounds

Pope Benedict XVI left Sydney this morning but the grace released here is still very present and at work! I have asked some of the Sisters in the next few days to post some stories of grace for all of you to share in the many signs of God's love, presence and activity in the lives of those that we have met here. Now I know what Saint John meant at the end of his Gospel when he said if he were to record all of the stories of Jesus' life and teaching, it would take more than all the books in the world could hold.

The theme for this WYD was from Acts 1: "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you and you will be my witnesses." Be encouraged! 200,000+ pilgrims have over these past 5 days had the fire of the Holy Spirit ignited within them anew, have been stregthned in their faith through the presence of the Pope and one another, and are now returning to the four corners of the earth to be His witnesses.
