The Beauty of Friendship With Christ Jesus
Stressing the beauty of friendship with Jesus Christ, Pope Benedict told enthusiastic seminarians;
"It is only when a young man has had a personal experience of Christ that he can truly understand the Lord’s will and consequently his own vocation. The better you know Jesus the more his mystery attracts you. The more you discover him, the more you are moved to seek him. This is a movement of the spirit which lasts throughout life, and which makes the seminary a time of immense promise, a true "springtime"."
