Among the thousands present at the general audience were uniformed members of NATO´s Defense College, whom the Pope addressed directly, encouraging them to see their profession “in these troubled times” as “a noble service of peace and the common good.”

John Paul II also spoke words of peace to the youth present, and proposed to them the example of St. Albert the Great, whose feast day is on Thursday.

“May his example be a stimulus for you, dear young people, to be agents of justice and architects of reconciliation,” the Pontiff said.
