Resplendent in crimson and white robes,

the Pope left his Apostolic Palace for the last time

on Monday, carried aloft on a red velvet litter

through the Vatican's frescoed hallways,

into a packed St. Peter's Square

and onto the vast basilica.

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pall bearers, cardinals and monks took Pope John Paul on one last trip from his palace on Monday, escorting his body to St. Peter's Basilica, the church that was his for 26 years and will be his burial place.

The bier carrying the pope who had traveled the world began its short journey in the Vatican's Apostolic Palace where he lived and ended it in the largest church in Christendom, where he will be buried after a funeral that cardinals set for Friday.

In a solemn ceremony shown on television, a procession of red-robed churchmen and suited ushers snaked its way slowly through frescoed hallways, down marble stairways and into St. Peter's Square, packed with tens of thousands of faithful.

As the Polish Pope's fully robed body, the hands clasped across the chest, emerged into the sunlit square, crowds waiting to file past it applauded in a traditional Italian sign of respect for the dead.

On the threshold of the basilica, the 12 ushers who had been carrying the body feet first, turned it around for a minute so the Pope could face the square where he had presided over thousands of general audiences and Masses for a last time.
