Excellente Idea, I believe that sports contribute to make friends and having these habilities is also a gift from God.

Why is this sad Albert? Perhaps the title is misleading, the event will be occurring in the days preceding WYD, and will not be on at the same time as the WYD events.

nice idea, it develops camaraderie between the youths. but be sure it would not affect the highlights of the WYD event. I pray to God that He give me enough courage even though i have disability because i want to witness for the second time the WYD and to meet the Pope personally. When the WYD was celebrated in Sydney i was not given a chance to meet and to see the Pope closer.
