Take the World Youth Day Experience Back Home, Says Pope Benedict XVI

Pope Benedict XVI left Spain on the evening of August 21, after giving a challenge to the million-plus young people who came to World Youth Day in Madrid over the past six days. “Now I ask you to spread throughout the world the profound and joyful experience of faith which you had here in this noble country,” said the Pope, on the tarmac at Madrid’s Barajas Airport.

“By your closeness and your witness, help your friends to discover that loving Christ means living life to the full.” Visit this article to read the Pope's final words as he left Madrid at the close of World Youth Day 2011.
