CiNews: Pope tells WYD pilgrims to bear witness

Below is an excerpt taken from an article from CiNews.

“The world needs the witness of young people’s faith, Pope Benedict XVI, said at the concluding mass for World Youth Day at Madrid’s Cuatros Vientos airbase yesterday (Sunday).

He began his homily saying that celebration of the Eucharist was the high point of World Youth Day.

“Seeing you here, gathered in such great numbers from all parts of the world, fills my heart with joy.  I think of the special love with which Jesus is looking upon you.  Yes, the Lord loves you and calls you his friends (cf. Jn 15:15).  He goes out to meet you and he wants to accompany you on your journey, to open the door to a life of fulfilment and to give you a share in his own closeness to the Father,” the Pope said.”
