Pope Gives Youth Pauline DVDs

As the Vatican prepares for Christmas, and following up on the Pauline year, Benedict XVI met with university students and gave them a multimedia copy of St. Pauls Letter to the Romans on DVD.Benedict XVIIt?s without a doubt one of the most important cultural texts of all time. But it is still primarily a living message for a lively Church, and as such I place it in your hands this evening.Almost two millennia after Saint Paul wrote the Letter to the Romans, it still reveals how salvation is achieved through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Today the ancient text enters the next millenia in digital format.Next to the Pope was Cardinal George Pell who organized this year?s World Youth Day in Sydney. It was the first youth day to take full advantage of technology and reach out to tech savvy youths.
