Your views: Hopes for Benedict XVI
Part of a community

Arthur Slopsnys, 35, Lithuania, supermarket manager

It's very emotional being here today. I feel I am part of a huge community. The atmosphere here is so friendly. Even the children are calm and happy.

It's wonderful to be here at such an historical moment, and I feel very happy and positive about the start of the new pope's reign.
