World bids farewell

World bids farewell.
VATICAN CITY — Pope John Paul II, his face veiled with white silk and
his body resting in a simple cypress casket, was mourned by millions
yesterday in one of the biggest funerals the world has ever known and
was buried beneath the grand Renaissance basilica where he oversaw the
Roman Catholic Church for 26 years. [Boston Globe — Front Page]
