With rosary in hand, Pope John Paul II scans the crowd as his helicopter circles Colorado's Cherry Creek State Park before the closing Mass for World Youth Day Aug. 15, 1993. "Place your intelligence, your talents, your enthusiasm, your compassion and your fortitude at the service of life," the pope told the hundreds of thousands of people gathered there.
