Benedict XVI
"As Jesus' exaltation took place through his abasement, so in our lives and in our pryer we discover that, by lowering ourselves in humility and love, we are lifted up to God.”


The Pope said that true Christianity is more than following the example of Jesus. It's also about living and acting as He would.  

Benedict XVI

"May we more frequently bend the knee in praise and worship of Christ's divinity and his Lordship over all creation. In our prayer, may we be ever more faithful witnesses of his sovereignty in our every thought, word and deed.”


The Pope then encouraged the youth to take advantage of the summer. In addition to relaxing, he said, they should also take part in social projects to care of the needy.
