Benedict XVI
"Welcome to the Palace, to the house of the Pope."

The Pope had a few improvised words for the children. He recalled that when he was their age he learned to read, and that allowed him some years later to read a book written by God: the Bible.

Then he gave some very personal advice.

Benedict XVI
"You’ll make many friends in school and that is beautiful, as it makes for a large family. But among the great friends, the first we find, whom we come to know, is Jesus, who is a friend of all who really shows us the path of life."

Some children gave gifts to the Pope. He was given balloons to personal letters, drawings to a painting made with plasticine.

Gifts that were much appreciated by the Pope who had always wanted to be a teacher.
