He then highlighted the key role fathers have in people's lives, by reflecting on how Jesus referred to God, as 'Abba' or Father. Following this example, he also called on Catholics to think of God as a Father.

Benedict XVI
"The word 'Abba' was used by Jesus to express his loving relationship with the Father; our own use of this word is the fruit of the presence of the Spirit of Christ within us.”

As usual, dozens of groups from around the world gathered in St. Peter's Square to greet the Pope. Among them, was this choir of young Asian girls, who briefly sang for the Pope.
