Thank you for the beautiful and inspirational photographs. It is unfortunate that the Mass at National Stadium was so aesthetically abysmal. The silly attempts at Multiculturalism wound up with what sounded like Calypso and new-age flute melodies, hardly appropriate to a Catholic service. It was difficult to watch/listen without wincing. Apparently Benedict's efforts to revive and beautify the litugy have been unsuccessful to date.

Thank you for these beautiful photos of our historical and exciting moments of the visit of Our Holy Father. Is is possible to get copies of these? They are certainly better than any I could have taken!
