John Paul II as Showman in Canada

In Canada, 1984, John Paul II enjoys an ovation in the Montreal Olympic Stadium filled with people, above. This photo gives a close-up of the full scene pictured below. On the lamp-shaped orange podium, he stands on the spot where the flame would rise. Over his head and under his feet are symbols of the Holy Ghost, possibly a referrence to the Pentecostal or Charismatic Movement.

The components of the enormous white dove on the ground are bare-legged young women who, at a certain point in the ceremony, start to dance for the Actor Pope
(click here for a close-up).
