VATICAN CITY, OCT. 28, 2009 (http://www.zenit.org“>Zenit.org).- In his customary greeting at the end of the general audience, Benedict XVI today offered the sick, newlyweds and youth the example of the Apostles Simon and Jude.

“May their evangelical testimony sustain you, dear young people, in the commitment of daily faithfulness to Christ,” the Pope said as he concluded his address in St. Peter’s Square.

“May it encourage you, dear sick people, to always follow Jesus on the path of trial and suffering,” he added. “May it help you, dear newlyweds, to make of your family the place of constant encounter with the love of God and neighbor.”
