“As a youth minister, I always thought to myself that it would be such an amazing experience to be able to go to World Youth Day. I’ve put on retreats and even was blessed to be on the production team for the archdiocesan youth conference with over 2,000 teens, but I’ve never been to a youth gathering on such a grand scale. I never thought it would even be possible for me to ever go, but God answers prayers!!! I wanted to walk to the pilgrimage because I knew that it would test me spiritually and physically. What a better way to spend my days then to offer that walk up to God. I know that I will gain from this trip a much deeper appreciation for my Catholic faith, St. James, the universal Church as my family and suffering. What an honor and blessing it is to walk the way of some of the past saints. I know that doing this will make me so much more gracious for all of the things that I take for granted in my daily life.  I can’t wait to get to Spain and see the Shrine of Saint James and the beautiful scenery of the pilgrimage. I am so thrilled to end the pilgrimage with going to World Youth Day and seeing Pope Benedict XVI.”
