TELEVISION MESSAGE OF JOHN PAUL II
Saturday, 9 October 2004
I greet the "Work of the New Millennium" Foundation and all those who on the occasion of the anniversary of my Pontificate have planned various religious, cultural and social events. I am pleased that the memory of the day on which the Lord called me to the See of Peter has become an opportunity for prayer and reflection on matters of the faith and on the reality of the Church as well as for concrete acts of mercy, especially those for young people in need of assistance in acquiring an education suited to their respective competence. May this effort of the Church in Poland bear fruits of peace in their personal, family and social lives.
I wholeheartedly bless you all: in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
