Canonization 2014 - The Power of the Cross

ROME,VATICAN 25 April: A very special event was held in Rome that honored the Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, Blessed John Paul II, Blessed John XXIII and the WYD Cross and what it symbolizes. The Event began at the Centro San Lorenzo, which is the Chapel in Rome that houses the WYD Cross. Mass was celebrated with a completely packed Church filled with young adults and teens from all around the globe. This was followed by a joyful procession through the streets of Rome inviting those who were met along the way to join them in their journey to Piazza Navonna. What followed next was entrance into Sant'Agnese in Agone (Church) in which a full program of activities. It began with personal stories of the impact that Blessed John Paul II and Blessed John XXIII had on the lives of the speakers, and also stories of intersessions and answered prayers. This was followed by Veneration of the WYD Cross and ultimately finishing with Benediction and Adoration of the Most Holy Sacrament of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. The event spanned several hours, was attended by hundreds, and was perhaps one of the most powerful experiences in this photographers life. JEFFREY BRUNO/ALETEIA
