Rome - A meeting of 40 000 european priest servers to renew their faith

Our "Erzdi÷zese Freiburg" (south-west germany) took a trip with many priest-servers from all over Germany. But we weren't the only ones. Other countries went with us to form a ultra huge group. Together we explored Rome. It was very hot during that time(august 2006), but almost everywhere are froutains to refill your empty bottle with ice cold water. Our first visit at the first day was the cathedral of saint peter. The church with the biggest dome in the world with a radius of over 40 metres!
