I enjoyed hearing the "Great Hymn of the Jubilee" sung as Pope Benedict processed in for the final Mass of WYD and so went hunting on line for it and found this:

Andrea Bocelli singing "Gloria a Te Cristo Gesu" with moving video of John Paul II at the great Jubilee and WYD 2000 in Rome interspersed with pictures of him laying in state nearly 5 years later.

Tears came to my eyes as I watched. Especially the overhead shots of the 2 million pilgrims at World Youth Day and most poignant of all: A frail John Paul closing the great bronze doors to mark the end of the Jubilee.

It was his inspiration that birthed WYD: a stunningly powerful evangelizing moment that has an Olympic-sized impact on its host nation, on the Church, and innumerable others who witness it via the internet or television.

Anyway - the video brought back a lot of memories. Take a look.
