Scene into the streets

On the third day of the Scene Congress, Friday evening, four processions formed up at different locations in the city (locations which had been hubs of WYD08), to carry an icon of the Saviour through the streets by candlelight. The processions left from The Opera House, the Haymarket, Darling Harbour and the Sacred Heart church in Darlinghurst. I accomapnied the procession from Darlinghurst, which was led by the French Emmanuel Comunity. We prayed the rosary and sang as we walked, and again, so many people were amazed to see us moving through the Friday evening city streets, and many people came up to us to enquire about what was taking place. The processions finally converged on the Cathedral where a group of about 400 strong joined in adoration of our Eucharistic Lord. He really is preparing His Church here in Sydney.
