Updated: World Youth Day Blogging

A number of people from my church are leaving for Cologne tonight for the World Youth Day pilgrimage. Alas, I was unable to go, but I do plan on being there in spirit by blogging news and observations from here in Colorado, as well as posting reports from pilgrim friends on the ground, in the unlikely event one of them accesses an Internet cafe.

Here at home, there will be EWTN coverage as well as blogging by An American Housewife (whose blog motto -- Normal is a setting on the dishwasher -- I like very much).

The event is from August 16-21, but American Housewife has already gotten the ball rolling by posting the Vatican II Council's address to young people, along with a partial list of World Youth Day Bloggers:

  • Open Book -- Amy Welborn has an updated list of World Youth Day blogsites.
  • Confessions of a Recovering Choir Director
  • Young and Catholic
  • Coragio - The travelblog of Fr Willy Raymond and Jim Caviezel to World Youth Day 2005
  • House of Literature
  • Caminayven.com - Spanish blog from the Neocatechumenal Way
  • Archdiocese of Indianapolis
  • Catholic Report

  • To get us started here, I've got a post from a few days ago, Benedict Bands, about white plastic wrist bands you can buy in solidarity with the young pilgrims in Cologne.
