Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

World Youth Day 2005!!

Whoo-hoo, I'm getting excited! Our Holy Father has once again called all youth and young adults to pilgrimage with him for another World Youth Day!

In 2005, WYD will be held August 12-22 in Cologne, Germany!

"We Come to Worship Him"
-Matthew 2:2

Official WYD 2005 Website!

Prayer for WYD -

Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the World, You became man, to give us a life in abundance. You promised to remain with Your Church until the end of time. Then Your Kingdom will come: a new heaven and earth full of love, justice and peace. This is our hope, our foundation. Thanks be to You.

Lord, we pray:
- Bless the young people around the world.
- Reveal Yourself to those who are in search of You.
- Awake the non-believers.
- Strengthen the faith of those who confess You.
- Let them continuously search for You like the three Wise Men from the East.
- Make them architects of a new civilization of love and witnesses of hope for the whole world.
- Through them may You be with those who suffer from hunger, war and violence.
- Inspire those who are contributing to the World Youth Day 2005.
- May they serve Your kingdom with the power of their faith and their love and may they welcome their brothers and sisters from all over the world with open hearts.

Lord, You gave us Mary as our mother. Let her be our advocate for this World Youth Day.

May it become a celebration of faith. Bless Your Church with new strength in these days, so that it can become a credible witness for You. We ask this through our Lord and God, living in the unity of the Father and the Holy Spirit, reigning forever and ever.
