Retired US bishop William McNaughton arrives for Mass at St. Peter's Square. Bishop McNaughton attended all four sessions of the Second Vatican Council. Recalling the original procession in 1962 he told Catholic News Service "Because television cameras from all over the world were taking pictures, all the lights were on in the basilica. I thought I was at the gate of Heaven." Bishop McNaughton was Apostolic Vicar and then Bishop of Inchon, Korea.
