World Youth Day 2008

Just over four years ago was all the excitement of the Pope's visit to Australia for World Youth Day.  Recently, this colourful image taken by an unidentified photographer was discovered on the internet.  It shews the Pope processing into Saint Mary's Cathedral, Sydney at the Mass for Seminarians and Religous.  It was a memorable occasion.

His Holiness is wearing the vestments and mitre made by the Saint Bede Studio especially for that Mass, and which are now housed in the sacristy of the Vatican Basilica.  Maybe we will see them worn again someday.
