There are some great World Youth Day photos at the slide show here.

I can't help but comment on the caption to this one taken at the welcoming ceremony on Thursday, however.

Walbunja and Kamilaroi Aborigines perform the Welcome to Country ceremony as Pope Benedict XVI walks towards the vessel to take him across Sydney Harbour on July 17. Benedict XVI on Thursday delivered a stinging attack on pop culture, consumerism and "false idols" to 150,000 mainly teenaged Catholic pilgrims gathered in Australia for World Youth Day.
Um, stinging attack? You mean the meditation on beauty?
