Qantas flight engineers have taken industrial action, leading to the cancellation of flights scheduled to take pilgrims to Sydney, particularly affecting from Brisbane.
I feel for the frustration people must be feeling. Yet another example of Australian secularism attempting to undermine WYD.
But I can't help feeling that there is a reason for this - after all, what city more needs evangelising than Brisbane!
If they haven't already done so, perhaps pilgrims could do a little church clearing - there is a Buddhist statue and assorted heretical literature that needs to be removed from South Brisbane for starters.....
Anyway, let's hope and pray everyone makes it in time.
