Pope St. John Paul II observes three minutes of silence for the victims of the southeast Asian tsunami at the end of his weekly general audience in the Paul VI Hall at the Vatican, January 5, 2005. The 84-year-old pontiff again asked Christians to pray for the populations stricken by Asia’s tsunami disaster, as Europe-wide mourning ceremonies were under way.
