“We can not follow Jesus on our own”
ROME REPORTS: After a night Vigil that was marked by rain, Pope Benedict XVI concelebrated the World Youth Day Closing Mass with thousands of bishops and priests in the Cuatro Vientos aerodrome.
The Holy Father recalled that the Church is not just an institution but is very close to God and has highlighted the need to live Christianity.
“...Following Jesus in faith means walking at his side in the communion of the Church. We can not follow Jesus on our own,” the Holy Father said.
“The presence here of so many young people, coming from all over the world, is a wonderful proof of the fruitfulness of Christ's command to the Church: 'Go into the world and preach the gospel to all creation.'”
