The pilgrim packs are being assembled for this year's World Youth Day in Madrid.
And just like when he became the first pilgrim to register for the August 2011 event, Pope Benedict became the first to receive the pilgrim pack.
The Archbishop of Madrid, Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco Varela, hand delivered Pope Benedict XVI his official WYD pilgrim pack.
It's just one of the many preparations going on for Madrid.
