Another set of images from April 2014.

April 2014

It's the Second Sunday of Advent and the window on our Advent Calendar we're opening today looks at the busy month of April.

Yesterday we looked at an important international conference on human trafficking, today we focus on the canonisation of two popes and Holy Week when we remembered in prayer the Passion, death and Resurrection of Christ.

Main Image

The main image shows a section of the tens of thousands of people in St Peter's Square to celebrate two new saints for the Catholic Church. The two pilgrims featured hold up a copy of the Vatican's newspaper, the L'Osservatore Romano, that carried the cover image of the two popes to be canonised - Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II.
