PASTORAL VISIT OF HIS HOLINESS BENEDICT XVI
Sunday, 4 March 2012
Greetings to the Children before Mass
I wish you a good Sunday, I wish you a good day!
It gives me great joy to see so many children. Therefore Rome is alive and will also be alive tomorrow! You are on your way in catechesis: learn about Jesus, learn what he did said and suffered; learn in this way about the Church, the Sacraments and in this way you will also learn how to live because living is an art and Jesus shows us this art.
I wish you all a good Sunday. And then already today I also wish you a Happy Easter. Thank you for your warmth!

Greetings to the Faithful after Mass
Thank you for this beautiful celebration and for the church, with Our Lady and the Saints. We are a family with all the saints.
Last Sunday the Lord guided us through the wilderness. This Sunday, to the mountain: they are always privileged places for being a little closer to God, to come out of all the everyday things and perceive that God is there, that he is the centre of our life.
I hope you feel the closeness of God and that he guides you every day. A good Sunday, a good Lent to you all!
