Mel Gibson invited to reenact Stations of the Cross for WYD 2008

.- Although the location of the next World Youth Day has not yet been made public, Cardinal George Pell of Sydney has asked Mel Gibson to recreate the Passion of the Christ there for a World Youth Day in 2008.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the actor and director has been approached to recreate the movie that narrates the last hours of the life of Christ in the streets of the Australian capital if it is chosen to host the event in ’08.

The newspaper reports that the portrayal would begin with a staging of the Last Supper at the famous Opera House, and conclude with the Crucifixion in the city's cathedral.

The Morning Herald indicated that Gibson has not yet responded to the invitation, but Cardinal Pell said, "He might well be attracted."

Pope Benedict XVI will announce the location of the newt WYD on August 21 during the closing Mass for WYD 2005 in Cologne.
