More than 1 Million Greet Pope in Germany


From AP Wire | 08/21/2005 | More than 1 million greet Pope in Germany:

"As he began his homily (text posted in post below), calling on the pilgrims and visitors to World Youth Day to make wise use of the freedom God had given them, the sun broke through the thick, gray clouds."

    Mike,

    A similar dynamic occurred at the Eucharistic Congress, at outdoor Mass in Guadalajara, Mexico on October 17, 2004. My family was present and it brought tears to our eyes. As an ailing JPII was heroically flashed on the large TV screens in the endzones, the sky opened wide directly above this soccer stadium that seated 60,000. A radiant sun burst forth in glory and this caused thousands of umbrellas to be raised heavenward in a Fatima-esk display that was undeniable...

    (I'll try to get a photo of this from one of the other pilgrims)
