VATICAN CITY, APR 1, 2007 (VIS) - At the end of today's solemn liturgical celebration for Palm Sunday and the Passion of the Lord, Benedict XVI addressed greetings in several languages to the thousands of pilgrims gathered in St. Peter's Square.

  Speaking French, English, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish and Italian, the Pope addressed his remarks particularly to the young people participating in World Youth Day, recalling the theme of this year's event : "Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another."

  "With great joy and enthusiasm," he said, "you have welcomed this new commandment of Christ, Who calls you to be His witnesses among your peers. Do not be afraid to follow Him faithfully."

  "I wish everyone a Holy Week rich in spiritual fruits and for this reason I invite you to experience it in intimate union with the Virgin Mary. From her we learn interior silence, the gaze of the heart, the loving faith to follow Jesus on the way of the Cross which leads to the joyous light of the Resurrection."
