vox populi

Here are some of the thousands upon thousands of pilgrims who slept in the sreets and on the ground around St. Peter's to have an opportunity to see the funeral.

One of the most moving sights at the funeral was Cardinal Ratzinger, and all the cardinals, standing silently after the communion while people chanted the word "Santo" and "Giovanni Paulo". Ratzinger let the people go on for quite a while.
