Are WYD pilgrims winning the heart of Sydney?

Sydney's Daily Telegraph is reporting that strange things are happening in Sydney.  Joy is breaking out despite all of Sydney's best efforts.  It seems as though over 150,000 joyful Catholic pilgrims can make a difference to the normal hustle, bustle, gloom of typical Sydney folk.
Romeo Mike has a good post with some sample video of Sydney's streets.
And to shock even the most seasoned locals, the Sydney Morning Herald has some positive coverage with great quotes from pilgrims.
"We stayed last night at a Pymble school classroom and we froze, and I think it will be the same again tonight.
"But if Jesus carried the cross we can carry our luggage."

And tomorrow, we'll be in the midst of it all!
