Tens of thousands ap- plauded as he rode through po- lice cordons into Sydney. Prime Minister John Gorton welcomed the frail 73-year-old Pope at the Sydney Airport, saying: "Many of us have ad- mired your fortitude in the ex- tensive travels you have under- taken in the Old World and the New." The self-proclaimed "apostle on the Pope Paul now has visited every continent dur- ing his 7% years in the Holy See except Antarctica.
