It all began with John Paul II’s love for young people. On Palm Sunday of 1984, the Pope convoked the youth of Rome to celebrate with him the Holy Year of Redemption: their answer was enthusiastic and surpassed all expectations. There were over 250,000 youth from around the world attending this event.
I was a Youth Counselor then and one of the group leaders on the trip to Rome and Denver. Each event included 7 days of activities for the attendees. It was something to experience and behold.
Been on vacation the past week and many projects were on my "to do" list. Much was completed and while some didn't get done the one most important was Phase I of the interior of my house, which included painting my living/dining room. The transformation has started and all I can say is WOW! More photos to come as we just finished about an hour ago and looking forward to taking photos in the morning light before posting on Flickr. BTW, the above photo was taken as my shirt reflected on the switch plate.
