    Fireworks at the Cathedral

    The city at its brightest and best. Ending the Year of Faith with a spectacular fireworks display on and around the Metropolitan Cathedral this evening. Yes, that's right - on the Cathedral. The pyro-men used the spacecraft shape of the 1960s place of worship to full effect, with lights going off from all around the building's circular base at the beginning and gradually building up to the top where at one stage some rocketed out horizontally into the Liverpool sky.

    With Asia's suffering very much in mind, stewards making a collection as we stood in the road at one of the city's usually-busiest junctions, it was wonderful to be present with thousands of others, open-mouthed, awestruck at this great way to celebrate - and remember - the passing of time, the preciousness of joyful moments.
