“See you in Sydney!” says Pope Benedict

Pope Benedict XVI said on Palm Sunday 2008

“I address [my greeting] in a special way to young people come from many countries of the world on the occasion of the World Youth Day, which the beloved Servant of God John Paul II wanted to link with Palm Sunday.

In this moment my thoughts turn to Sydney, in Australia, where the preparations are under way for the great meeting that I will have with the young people of the whole world from July 15 to 20 of this year.

I thank the Australian Bishops’ Conference, Cardinal Pell, the Archbishop of Sydney, and his collaborators in particular, for all the work that they are doing with such commitment. I am also grateful to the Australian Federal and State officials for the generous support offered to this important initiative. See you in Sydney!”
