Pope Benedict XVI led a moving vigil of prayer and Benediction in London’s Hyde Park with over 80,000 pilgrims in attendance.

The media at the time described it as “Glastonbury with God”.

“Without the life of prayer, without the interior transformation which takes place through the grace of the sacraments, we cannot, in Newman’s words, ‘radiate Christ’; we become just another ‘clashing cymbal’ (1 Cor 13:1) in a world filled with growing noise and confusion, filled with false paths leading only to heartbreak and illusion.”
