VATICAN CITY, NOV. 10, 2010 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI is encouraging young people, the sick and Christian spouses to be dedicated to building up the Church.

The Pope made this invitation at the conclusion of today’s general audience, when he offered his traditional greetings to these three groups of people.

He mentioned that Tuesday was the feast of the dedication of the Basilica of St. John Lateran, the cathedral church of Rome.

Along with that basilica, the Holy Father said, “we remembered also the churches in which your communities gather and those that still await to be built in Rome and in the world.”

He added: “Dear young people, sick people and Christian spouses, I exhort you to collaborate with all the People of God and with all men of good will to build up the House of the Lord.

“Always be ‘living stones’ of the spiritual building that is the Church, walking together in service of the Gospel, in the offer of prayer and in the sharing of charity.”
