Pope Invites Youth to Eucharist

Benedict XVI is indicating Christ as the source of strength for many life situations, particularly for young people, the sick and newlyweds.

The Pope gave his traditional final greeting to close today's general audience in St. Peter's Square, addressing a special exhortation to these three groups of people.

To youth, he said: "Dear young people always draw from Christ present in the Eucharist the spiritual food to advance along the way of sanctity."

The Holy Father added: "For you, dear sick people, may Christ be the support and comfort in your trial and suffering; and for you, dear newlyweds, may the sacrament which has rooted you in Christ be the source that nourishes your daily love."
