BENEDICT XVI: VIGIL WITH YOUTH, LET LOVE BE "YOUR MEASURE, CHALLENGE AND MISSION"

According to Benedict XVI, by observing "this ceaseless gift" of God eternally giving himself in the Holy Spirit "we come to see the limitations of all that perishes, the folly of the consumerist mindset" and "begin to understand why the quest for novelty leaves us unsatisfied and wanting". "Inspired by the insights of St. Augustine – he exhorted the young people gathered for the prayer vigil at Randwick – "let unifying love be your measure; abiding love your challenge; self-giving love your mission!". "The Spirit’s gifts working within us give direction and definition to our witness – the Pope continued –. Directed to unity, the gifts of the spirit […] call us to active an joyful participation in the life of the Church", which "must grow in unity, be strengthened in holiness, rejuvenated, and constantly renewed" according to the standard to the Holy Spirit. "Turn to him, dear young people, and you will find the true meaning of renewal".
