Day 7 - Leverkusen
Day 7 - Leverkusen

Ok got up at 07.00, not good, so little sleep is starting to take its
toll. We dragged ourselves to Morning Prayer and had a bread roll and
jam (bread rolls and sausage, ahhhhhh!), did not make a dint on my
hunger. We grouped up ready to go to Leverkusen for catechises Soooo
tired. So we are now on the coach. Hopefully the weather should be nicer
today, hopefully today should be good, just a little too tired to enjoy

We have just arrived at the stadium, its cool, there is a built in
McDonalds, yum yum, not usually a fan of McDonalds but after 3 days of
bread rolls anything is good. This stadium was for English speaking
people hosted by Cardinal Theodore Mc'Arick from Washington DC. The
stadium was most impressive capable of holding 20,000+ (witch compared
to Cologne is not much, I know), but it also looked good. About 10,000
people turned up for the catechises and Mass. The catechises started
with a very good speech lasting about fifty minutes by the Cardinal.
Time to discuss the speech was followed by a short break. Then a Mass
said by the cardinal took place. It was very special. Once the Mass had
finished we got a drink at McDonald’s then we sat on the grass in a
circle and said some prayers with Father Michael, and a decade of the
Rosary. We took this opportunity to focus and re-fill our water. The
prayers were very nice. We then went to a pub and got a BIG beer. We
headed straight for the coach. I headed home and had a good laugh on the
coach. We arrived back in Bechen in what seemed to be a short amount of
time; probably because we where having a laugh. We sat on grass and
chilled for an hour (whilst Craig was recovering from
dehydration\bread-roll overdose) in the nice warm sun. A couple of
groups tried to go to Cologne but it was very busy. After a while we
went to pub, twelve of us and had a bloody good time/meal. We finished
and I returned home, but no key or answer to the door bell prevented me
from getting in; just at this time other groups started to arrive
including Father Simon and Thomas who I am staying with, so we returned
to the pub for a few more beers. Good night....so we finally called it a
day and returned home and went to bed.
