HUGE MOSAIC OF JOHN
PAUL II BEING PREPARED FOR WYD 2005
COLOGNE, Germany, July 5 (CNA)
- Organizers of the next World Youth Day are preparing a
gigantic mosaic containing a depiction of John Paul II.
The portrait will be made up of thousands of small
pictures of the Pope sent in by young people from all
over the world.
The initiative will allow many people "to be" in
Cologne even though they cannot make the trip. Photos
can be sent via the internet at http://www.thank-you-jpii.net.
The mosaic will be put on display at the Cathedral of
Cologne during World Youth Day, and every person who
sends in a picture will be sent a link to their
individual photo and be able to see the mosaic online.
According to the project's promoters, Ingo
Brüggenjürgen, Lutz Langel and Ralf Walter, "with this
action we want to show that love is stronger that death
and that the message of John Paul II continues to live
in thousands of people." Their goal is to make the
world's largest mosaic.
