Nearly two million young people waited for the pope at Madrid's Cuatro Vientos, where Benedict XVI held a prayer vigil during World Youth Day.

The music was played by the Symphonic Orchestra and World Youth Day's Choir. Two young men officially welcomed the pope.

Those taking part in the procession carried the World Youth Day Cross and the Icon of Our Lady Salus Populi Romani, along with the Gospel and candles.
