Vigil Is today
Mr. Cahoon here: Today our pilgrims will be going to the Marienfeld location for the vigil and then mass with the Pope on Sunday. From what I understand their location at Marienfeld is in visible on WEBCAM 2 in the center area. Lets pray for good weather for them as they spend the night. Some notes: There are 6500 vigil candles in the stage area and each pilrim has one as well. There are 1600 lights in the "cloud" that covers the stage area. Each area has a water spigot and there is 8million liters of water ready for the pilgrims. It will also probably take them 3-5 hours after mass to get back to the hotel. They expect a million people to attend. Our pilgrims then pack and grab a few hours of sleep before leaving at 5:00am on a bus to the airport.
