Pilgrim on the Way to Jesus with the Capuchin Friars

This is one of activities we were doing in leading up to World Youth Day 2008 in Sydney. We had a pilgrimage with the young people to Penrose Park where the Paulist Monk live there. This pilgrimage had a meaningfull journey, not just for fun but to deepen our faith, to share our hope. As a young people we purify our humanity and our heart to receive the power that Jesus promised.

Pilgrimage...

So on Saturday 24th November 2007 The Capuchin Assosiates do a pilgim. We call The Youth Pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Mercy of Jasna Gora, Penrose Park, Berrima.
On a pilgrim we present in a way to the new place. In our faith we walk through the way of Christ to the new Jerusalem. Jesus said, "I'm the way..". We are walking in this way. Some people say there is another way. We've known that, but I can't live in such that way. The way is the cross. Take it up and go on...

A Journey to New Zealand


After getting a new visa, Fr. Robert and I spent some couple of days in New Zealand. There were a lot of wonderful places there worth visiting. We had time driving and stay arround Christchurch, Moutunou Beach, Cheviot, Kaikoura, Hanmer Spring, and Akaroa Peninsula. I think that places are realy realy amazing, it's like a new earth. The wind blows so clear and fresh. We had a good weather along the journey. So the first day in Christchurch we got a chane for sightseing arround the city and and arround the nearer hill, where the Lord of the Ring film took its setting.
