The arrival of Pope Bendict XVI in Cologne:A great festival today in Cologne to welcome Pope Benedict XVI: Pilgrims poured from every part of the city to greet the Pope’s arrival: young members of the Community of Sant’Egidio, too, were making their way, from early morning onwards, to the Cathedral and onto the banks of the Rein to await his arrival. The was great joy and celebration when the Pope got out of his car to greet and bless the young people. The young group from Sant'Egidio welcomed him by waving peace flags bearing the dove and the rainbow, the characteristic symbol of the Community.Meanwhile the great stream of young pilgrims continues to arrive at the Church of St Ursula. They are indeed many, the groups of pilgrims from various countries of the world, who take part in the five daily prayers, and begin to make their acquaintance with the Witnesses to the Faith of the 20th Century.Great interest, in fact, surrounds the “icon of the new martyrs” – a copy of the original venerated in the Basilica of San Bartolomeo in Rome. Positioned in the centre of the great Romanesque church in Cologne, the icon acts as an open book, narrating the history of the Witnesses to the Faith in the 1900s: men and women from every part of the world who testified with their lives their faith in the Gospel.
