Through his message, Benedict XVI encourages people to become a Good Samaritan, citing Jesus as the ultimate example of a person who helps total strangers and asks nothing in return.

 "Volunteering is also very important in many countries, especially today with the crisis. We can't finance everything for everybody, but we can offer ourselves to others. This, I think, is the definition of being a Good Samaritan. That message of 'go and do likewise.'”

This year´s event will take place in the Pope's native Germany. In addition, sick patients and medical personnel attending the event, directly or from a distance, will be granted indulgences.
