(From our correspondents in Sydney) – "400 thousand pilgrims attended Final Mass, 500 thousand in the street and in Barangaroo for the Pope’s arrival, 110 thousand young people from abroad and 130 thousand from Australia, representing a total number of 170 countries, 2000 accredited journalists". These are the statistics of the WYD that have been provided to the press today by card. George Pell. "Financially – he added –, the WYD turned out to be profitable, with 70 thousand young people taking part in the "Days in the dioceses" in all the Australian States, with a positive impact on everyone. 500 million people watched us from all over the world, some on TV, some on the Internet, with peaks of one billion people. Since July 20th, the WYD website has been visited 250 thousand times during the live events”.
