Today, pilgrims are joining the Holy Father for a World Youth Day vigil in Madrid, Spain. Last night, they experienced the Via Crucis, the Way of the Cross, and tomorrow, World Youth Day 2011 will culminate with the closing Mass with Pope Benedict XVI in Cuatro Vientos.
Jesuit Father Jack Bentz sat down with some Magis pilgrims to talk about their experiences at World Youth Day 2011 in this video.
Jesuit Father Jack Bentz is at World Youth Day as a vocation promoter for the Society of Jesus. Currently in Madrid, Fr. Benz joins a group of other Jesuits from the U.S. who are speaking with young people at World Youth Day who might be discerning joining the Jesuits.
Benz explains to the WYD pilgrims what the Jesuits do, what a life as a Jesuit might look like and how these pilgrims might continue on with their own vocation path, possibly as a Jesuit like himself.
Hear more from Benz in the video below.
