Pope Benedict begins the Holy Week services with a penitential service for young people. Part of the message:

“At the roots of being Christian”, the Holy Father told the young people, “is an encounter with an event, with a Person. This opens a new horizon and, with it, a decisive sense of direction”. In order “to favor this encounter you are preparing to open your hearts to God, confessing your sins and – by the action of the Holy Spirit and through the ministry of the Church – receiving forgiveness and peace.

“Thus”, he added, “we make room in ourselves for the presence of the Holy Spirit, the third Person of the Blessed Trinity which is the ‘soul’ and the ‘vital breath’ of Christian life. The Spirit helps us to grow ‘in an understanding of Jesus that becomes ever deeper and more joyful and, at the same time, to put the Gospel into practice'”, he said.
