After mass this evening, the young pilgrims from Greenwich deanery were coming out of their youth group meeting. Clearly there is a strong desire to know and love God, and after a spiritually enriching Saturday, the community that had already been formed amongst the young people want to continue to develop and nourish their relationship with God. The Papal Visit may be over, but the faith that we share will continue to be alive and the Holy Father's visit rejuvenated and highlighted the energy and passion that is present in our Church- particularly among the young people.
Here is a link to a video clip I've uploaded to Youtube that a young person made yesterday http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCkKCWH7jHI
I hope that where ever you saw the Holy Father this weekend (in Birmingham or your front room), it was a special and blessed occasion.
