Blog shutting down. Temporarily, that is.

From now until no earlier than Tuesday 23 August, this blog will be closed.

I will be in Spain for the World Youth Day, spending a few days in Zaragoza and later in Madrid. Although this edition of the WYD is well-covered in social media, I made the decision to go silent for the duration. The reason for that is twofold. One, I simply lack the equipment necessary to continue blogging, tweeting and facebooking while not at home. And two, there are a few things I want to focus on while in Spain. I want to listen and learn, to be quiet and pray, to celebrate my faith, and to do so with the people I am with, not least among them my girlfriend. This is going to be our celebration, contemplation, adventure.

Perhaps I’ll meet some of you in Spain (don’t hesitate to come over and say hi), but in the mean time, stay safe.

God bless.
