It has been decided...

...with almost certainty that Juventutem's entry point into the 2008 World Youth Day will be Melbourne and her community. Now that the easy part is out of the way, and we may have found a place for our clergy to rest their dear heads... Goodness me! Australia is so incredibly different than Europe, or even the States... You'll soon know what I'm talking about!

Anyway, and perhaps on that note, we have deduced that it would be much easier if the bulk of planning was done in and out of Australia, though of course with much input and advice from all our beloved friends.

We feel it is most important to launch a website as soon as possible not so much for information at this stage (the original is still good for that), but to make a fresh start so to ascertain interest and some indication of international groups/numbers so as to best cater for them. No more blank faces of bemused 'foreigners!' Detractor input would be good, too! :)

What do you prefer?
Something else? Please not 'Juventutem-DownUnder'! :)

Forgive me being so jumbled at this point... there are so many possibilities, and a whole different landscape to consider. I'm thrilled at the prospect at having you all over for a picnic in the park, though... I want to show off my domus! :)

Oh yes, I thought that I would share a paraphrased comment from my dear friend, and fellow pilgrim, Jude:
"Well, if they don't bring enough jumpers (being Winter in July), then one of our activities will have to be a solemn procession to K-Mart, or Myer, if they are more upmarket!"

We do have the problem of trying to convert 'Juventutem' into a noun in its own right, rather than something else's accusative!

Or not....

I'm thinking Juventutem2008. And remember to pay the domain name fees after the event - you don't want some rogue to hijack that URL to point to a less-than-edifying virtual establishment.

Sorry, my wit fails me today. Too much math. Fare thee blessedly in thy charitable endeavor!

hehehehe! Oh beloveds! :) I love it all - Aristotle, do you watch the cricket? :)

A wonderful point about the domain name registration, too...

Hmmmm... a noun - Juventutes? But, does 'youth' collectively remain stated like something singular? Though the youth that we are speaking of is a little different than just 'a youth' - hmmmmm....

I was at the Cathedral yesterday, pondering sadly over some beautiful unused altars, with gates and rails and everything - and I wanted to leave a note that would have contained 'juventutem' in it...

Juventutem2008, then?
I'm having another chat with Father tonight, so I'll keep you posted :)

To base things from Melbourne would be great. Hopefully I'll get back there next year & visit again. It'll be disappointing not being at St Aloysius' for the Christmas Midnight Mass this year :)
