World Youth Days have drawn millions of young people around the globe to 'meet Peter', and think deeply about how to be a young Christian in today's world. In Madrid, Pope Benedict highlighted the importance of faith in the life of believers. He reflected on St Paul's expression: 'Planted and built up in Jesus Christ, firm in the faith' (cf. Col 2:7). Here you can read the memorable and powerful words he addressed to young believers to strengthen them in faith and encourage them to bring the Gospel out into the world through their daily lives. 'Part of being young is desiring something beyond everyday life and a secure job, a yearning for something truly greater. Is this simply an empty dream that fades away as we become older? No! Men and women were created for something great, for infinity. Nothing else will ever be enough'.
