VATICAN CITY, APR 23, 2004 (VIS) - Pope John Paul today welcomed the members of the Italian group Circolo San Pietro and told them that "the mission you fulfill with admirable apostolic zeal is very precious. By going out to help the poor, bringing aid to the sick and suffering, you witness in a concrete way to that "'creativity in charity' to which I invited people in the Apostolic Letter 'Novo millennio ineunte'."

  The Pope thanked them for their annual donation for Peter's Pence, saying that this gift "is a further sign of this openness to our brothers in difficulty And it is, at the same time, a concrete anticipation in the commitment of the Apostolic See to answer the growing urgencies of the Church, especially in the poorest countries."

  In expressing his gratitude, the Holy Father remarked that their commitment is also "animated by a convinced fidelity and adhesion to the Successor of Peter. You nourish this every day in prayer and listening to the Word of God. It is important that your life is centered around the mystery of the Eucharist. The secret of the efficacy of our every prayer is fidelity to Christ."
