  • Description

    In Rome Jan 25 Visnews filmed Pope John XXIII visiting the basilica of St Paul Outside the Walls.

    The Holy Father prayed in silence during the last ceremony of a series held to pray for the unity of the Catholic Church, especially as a gesture of solidarity with Catholics in China. The Papal Prayer was composed by Pope John for the "Church of Silence" - a traditional name for the basilica.

    Pope John left the Vatican at 9.30 in the morning and proceeded to St Paul's where he passed through the monastery to be borne into the basilica on a palanquin.

    After the ceremony the Holy Father gave his blessing to the community and returned to the Vatican through wildly cheering crowds.
