There was much excitement and enthusiasm in the streets of Rome yesterday.  There was an obvious shift of the type of pilgrims flooding the streets and the metros.  They were young people, ranging from age 13 to 23, moving together in organized but large groups.  They broke into song on the metro, which was really very beautiful for the other riders. They are in Rome for the 12th International Pilgrimage for Altar Boys and Girls and obviously and have been ecstatic prior to and following their special encounter with the Holy Father yesterday, despite the blazing sun beating upon them

Praise the Lord
