Hundreds of flags, custom made shirts and banners show the affection these pilgrims feel for the two Popes. St. Peter's Square became the crossing point for people from all nationalities and backgrounds.

 

 

 


"My name is Grance, this is May. My name is May, and we come from Hong Kong”



"We come from Gabon, from central Africa specifically. We came with a large delegation, all of the bishops from Gabon, with many bishops and lay people.”



Among the crowds, the colors that stood out most were white and red, the colors from the Polish flag.

 

 

 


"We are from Poland, so the home of John Paul II, and we are from Wadowice, so his home city.”


 


"We are from Poland, and we come here from Brodnica. We run 2000 km in seven days.”

 

 


"We are students, so we are about, in on our 20's. We came here by hitchhiking from Poland.”



None of them wanted to miss out on an event like this, when there's much more than meets the eye.

 

 


"John Paul II was a man who has a strong faith and I'm full of pride because of what he has done.”



They agree all efforts were worth it in the end. Any wariness and fatigue disappeared as soon as the announcement came, declaring John Paul II and John XXIII saints.
