Worshippers poured into central Madrid on Sunday to hear Pope John Paul
proclaim five Spaniards saints at a mass, the high point of a 36-hour visit
to Spain in which he pressed for peace in a world split by the Iraq war. As
the sun rose, the Madrid clubbers who normally stumble home after a Saturday
night out were substituted by old people, nuns and flag-carrying youngsters
who arrived by metro, coach, taxi, car and on foot to celebrate the 0800 GMT
