WYD: Gearing Up

Many of us will, unfortunately, not be able to attend World Youth Day 2005 in Cologne, but we can still participate by praying for those attending or otherwise involved in it. The patrons of WYD 2005 are the Three Magi, St. Boniface, St. Ursula, St. Albert Magnus, St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, and Bl. Adolph Kolping. Also, Pope Benedict XVI has decreed that a plenary indulgence will be granted to those who attentively and religiously attend WYD and a partial indulgence will be granted to those who pray for youth. There are more details to the indulgences, so be sure to check them out here (H/T But I Digress).
