VISNEWS filmed May 28 in Rome, Pope John 23rd. in the Corpus Domini procession from the Area Coeli Church to the Colosseum. This was the first time a Pope has taken part in the traditional religious ceremony.
Priests bearing crosses headed the procession as it wound its way from the church along the Via Dei Fori Imperiali. At the Colosseum, an altar had been erected for the first time under the Arch of Constantine.
After talking to the crowds, Pope John gave his holy benediction before leaving by car for the Vatican.
