The pope told the crowd that Christians should fear sin, not the world.

The pope recalled his recent trip to Portugal and the great enthusiasm by which he was received in Lisbon, Fatima and Porto.

Benedict XVI
“It’s great to see this multitude of people in St. Peter’s Square, as it was to see so many  people in Fatima, praying at the Shrine for the conversion of hearts.”

Benedict XVI also greeted immigrants who were celebrating the Feast of Nations at St. John the Lateran Square.
