I think it is a nice touch - and a recognition that the internet now makes events such as World Youth Day more "global" than ever - that the texts for these celebrations have been posted on the World Youth Day website. It allows people following the events from home to achieve a better participation than would otherwise be possible.

Guide to some main events of World Youth Day
Blog by the Sea has a post which gives a useful guide to following the World Youth Day "from afar". It includes timings of broadcasts of events from a number of satellite/internet providers, and links to the World Youth Day website that will allow you to download the texts for the three main liturgical celebrations: the Opening Mass on Tuesday, the Stations of the Cross on Friday and the closing Mass celebrated by Pope Benedict XVI on Sunday.
