“And then we have the title Domus Australia. It’s a Latin title. Domus means home. This will be a home for pilgrims. We are encouraging many people to come from Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific, to stay here. We will encourage them to move from being tourists to being interested more to pilgrims with a call to faith and to repentance.”

Cardinal Pell says he helped evaluate different stages of the logo design and helped give the final approval. The logo was tested extensively among men and woman of all ages.

Meanwhile construction inside of the house continues. For the moment Cardinal Pell has approved material for the rooms and bathrooms. He also visited the restoration of the church, one of the most complicated works.

And next year many generations of Catholic Australians will have a welcoming play to stay when they visit Rome.
