WYD Vigil: “Your strength is stronger than the rain”


ROME REPORTS: Nearly two million young people braved a summer storm to celebrate the World Youth Day 2011 Madrid Vigil with Pope Benedict XVI at Cuatro Vientos.

“Thank you for your joy and resistance. Your strength is stronger than the rain,” the Holy Father said.

“The Lord is sending us his blessings with the rain. With this, you're leading by example.”

The Pope then continued the Vigil and after a few moments of silence and prayer, he blessed the roughly two million youth people gathered there. He then prayed for all the young people, entrusting them to the Heart of Jesus with a simple prayer.
