VATICAN CITY, 7 SEP 2011 (VIS) - At the end of his catechesis today, Benedict XVI addressed greetings to a number of groups present at the general audience. Speaking to Polish pilgrims, he mentioned the recently deceased Cardinal Deskur. "During yesterday's funeral", he said, "we bid our final farewell to Cardinal Andrei Maria Deskur, a friend of Blessed John Paul II and your countryman. His service to the Pope was sustained with prayer and suffering, and he entrusted his own life to Mary Immaculate. May she implore heavenly glory for him".

Finally, speaking Italian, he greeted young people, the sick and newlywed couples. "Returning from the holidays to your daily activities", he told the young, "be sure to find time every day for your dialogue with God, and spread His light and peace around you. Dear sick people, find comfort in the Lord Jesus Who continues His work of redemption in the lives of all men and women. Dear newlyweds, learn to pray together in the intimacy of home life so that your love may become increasingly authentic, fruitful and lasting".
