A Re-Post of good 'ol papal encouragment

Encouragement from the Pope

"You need to know what you believe. You need to know your faith
with that same precision with which an IT specialist knows the
inner workings of a computer. You need to understand it like a
good musician knows the piece he is playing. Yes, you need to
be more deeply rooted in the faith than the generation of your
parents so that you can engage the challenges and temptations
of this time with strength and determination. You need god’s
help if your faith is not going to dry up like a dewdrop in the
sun, if you want to resist the blandishments of consumerism, if
your love is not to drown in pornography, if you are not going
to betray the weak and leave the vulnerable helpless."

-part of Pope Benedict XVI's introduction in the new Youth Catechism

God Bless Him!
