One of them, Ms Sharon Leong, said she “gained such a wide perspective of the universality of the Church ... seeing pilgrims from all around the world praising God was just inspiring.”
The 36-year-old Youth Minister from the Redemptorist Mission Team shared one particular experience of when she came across the adoration tent among the thousands of other tents occupied by pilgrims.
Inside, “with soft Spanish music playing, people from different countries, in their own languages were having their own moment with Christ. It felt like He was there, preaching to the masses,” she said.
