Pope visits the Sagrada Familia

The Pope visited Barcelona to consecrate the landmark cathedral of the Sagrada Familia. There have been protests for and against the visit, especially the way it has been financed. However, it seem to have been a great success, judging by the flag-waving crowds which lined the streets to greet the acclaimed visitor.

Personally, I was thrilled to see the magnificent interior of the basilica, filled to the seams with its illustrious visitors. Gaudi would have been overjoyed to see his creation so near fulfillment.

Will the cathedral now get the funding it requires to finish it? Will we see it completed in our lifetime?
