One of the hits of the Pope’s visit to Philadelphia was an art project at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul on Logan Circle called the “Knotted Grotto” where people could write down a prayer and leave it knotted to others.

But the project was always intended to be temporary and its creators Wednesday held a ceremonial closing.

Prayers were offered by a priest, a rabbi and an imam to honor the estimated 150,000 appeals left at the siteduring the month of September.
