Nuns prayers "secret weapon" against rain
Published: March 19, 2008
A secret weapon to ensure sunny skies during Pope Benedict's visit to Sydney for World Youth Day has been revealed - prayers.
Reuters reports WYD's Bishop Anthony Fisher, who is coordinating the Pope's mid-winter Sydney harbour cruise, says he hopes his "secret plan" will ensure good weather.
"I have nuns all around this country praying for good weather for that day," Bishop Fisher said.
Yesterday organisers unveiled plans for the Pope to arrive via Sydney Harbour by a 13-vessel "boat-a-cade".
It is expected about 150,000 people will line the harbour to welcome the Pope.
