John Paul's Funeral Mass Concludes

APRIL 8, 2005 - Posted at 7:40 a.m. CDT, updated at 11:05 a.m. CDT

 

VATICAN CITY - The funeral mass for Pope John Paul in St. Peter's Square has concluded amid applause from the huge throng in attendance.

As the cardinals in their flowing, red vestments filed out, pallbearers lifted the casket containing the pope's body and carried it out of the square toward its final resting place under St. Peter's Basilica.

The crowd shouted, cheered, applauded and some wept as the body was removed and a bell in the basilica tolled for the late pontiff.

The Vatican says Pope John Paul's remains have been buried in the grotto under St. Peter's Basilica.

Meanwhile, Region 8 residents are also using today to show a final tribute to the pope.  This afternoon, students at St. Mary's Elementary School in Paragould will pay tribute to the pope in a special Rosary service.  This evening in Jonesboro, Blessed Sacrament Church will conduct "An Evening of Prayer," beginning with a 6:30 Rosary service, followed by a memorial mass at 7.  K8 News will have live coverage of the Blessed Sacrament events this evening at 6 and 10 p.m.
