    Eternal Flame.. a physical one

    An eternal flame in honour of John Paul II will be lit tomorrow at the Vatican grottos, in a ceremony to be led by the Vicar General of Vatican City, Archbishop Angelo Comastri, and attended by famous athletes.


    Catholic News Agency reports that the event will be attended by several athletes, including Olympic champion Manuela Di Centa, who will carry a lighted torch from the Monastery of St Vincent in Bassano Romano to the Vatican to light the flame.

    Athletes will carry the torch throughout Italy on its way to the Monastery. The John Paul II International Foundation has organised the ceremony as one part of series of social and religious events.
