Pope John Paul II to the Youth of America

“Be assured that the Lord knows each of you by name and wishes to speak to your heart in a dialogue of love and salvation.  God continues to speak to young people on the banks of the Mississippi River and on the slopes of the Rocky Mountains.  God continues to speak in the cities on the West Coast of America and across the rolling hills and plains.  God continues to speak to every human person.  Dear young people of America, listen to his voice. Open up your hearts to Christ.  The deepest joy there is in life that comes from God and is found in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.  He is the hope of the world. Jesus Christ is your hope and mine!” -Pope John Paul II, 1987, Los Angeles.
