I'm not sure which is sadder...

... the realization that I am too old to attend World Youth Day or the fact I am attending the event virtually. Maybe it's a combination of the two. Probably more of the first though.

That's so cool...in a nerdy kind of way (that I really like). I am also, waaaaayyy too old to attend WYD, but the virtual pilgrimage is really neat.

As one who is older (38) and also watching the World Youth Day events from afar, I know how it feels. However, when I feel down about my age, and about not getting to do things like WYD with the younger Catholic crowd, I remind myself that at least I'm back *in* the Church. As recently as two years ago (as a Calvinist Protestant at the time), I couldn't have imagined returning to the Church... but I'm very, very glad that I did.

Thanks for the link! Now I'm virtually attending, too!
