Pope to Seminarians: Do Not Be Afraid


(Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI offered words of encouragement today to young men studying for the priesthood, telling them not to be afraid of giving their lives completely to Christ.

The Pope said this in a brief greeting to English-speakers who gathered with him at Castel Gandolfo for the midday Angelus.

He drew attention to the new class of seminarians at the Pontifical North American College.

“Dear seminarians, do not be afraid to take up the challenge in today’s Gospel to give your lives completely to Christ,” he told the young men. “Indeed, may all of us be generous in our commitment to him, carrying our cross with faith and courage.”
