Pope John Paul II arrived in St. Louis on January 26, 1999. Tens of thousands of people lined the parade routes and cheered. The air was electric with excitement and spiritual renewal. During his 32-hour pastoral visit, the Holy Father touched the hearts of people of all faiths. He addressed the youth gathered to celebrate their baptismal call to encounter Christ. He celebrated Mass with an assembly of 90,000 faithful at an indoor venue, while thousands more braved the winter weather and prayed outside. At an ecumenical prayer service on the second day of his visit, the Pope reached out to people around the globe, inviting them to take up the challenge and enter the new millennium with Christ as their Shepherd.
