A Circus Touch at the Audience

VATICAN CITY, NOV. 10, 2004 (Zenit.org).- A circus entertained John Paul II and a crowd of faithful in an unusual setting — the general audience.

Accompanied by music, five acrobats, two jugglers and dancers of the Cirque du Soleil improvised a brief show on the stage of Paul VI Hall during today’s audience.

At the end of the performance, the Pope expressed his pleasure and personally greeted and blessed the artists.
