Just the essentials MARK 6: 7–13
In July 2016, I was privileged to be a part of the local contingent representing our archdiocese at World Youth Day in Poland. Approximately eighty-five pilgrims gathered at Piarco International Airport that evening in July pretty excited to leave our shores for our long trip across the Atlantic. We were carded to leave Piarco for Gatwick Airport, London, and then from Gatwick to Warsaw Chopin Airport, Poland.
Whenever I go on a trip with so many people, especially when we are all going for the same occasion, I usually observe people’s luggage. For some persons, you just have to wonder if they are migrating to the country of destination because of their enormous load, and for others, you question what they really have in just that one small suitcase.
