One year ago today I was on Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil celebrating holy Eucharist at Mass with 3 million other Catholics from around the world, and Papa Francisco. There are absolutely no words for me to even begin to describe how much that trip has changed my heart&life. World Youth Day 2013 was an experience of a LIFETIME. My biggest prayer is to always take this memory of this trip with my everywhere I go and inspire those who have yet experienced a World Youth Day! There’s nothing else like it in the entire world. I can not even fathom the thought of the person I’d be without experiencing this mini foretaste of Heaven. I am not the same person I was before going on this trip. This right here.. This is what Heaven will be like. Lord, thank you. Can’t wait for Poland 2016!
