Huge mosaic of John Paul II being prepared for WYD 2005

.- 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.
