Benedict XVI, 18th May 2008 : The secret to being young at heart is to live with hope, which one only finds in a true encounter with Jesus Christ.
The years of youth are full of expectations and dreams, but even when they pass, we should all remain young in our hearts.
It is beautiful to be young; we all want to be so, and it’s because the youth sill have their entire future before them, and the future signifies time of hope.
You are in a position now to make important choices, and it is important to choose well and not to destroy your future.
The first fundamental election should be God.
To be young implies to be good and generous.
The goodness in a person is Jesus.
Jesus is the friend that will never betray. Only he can dissolve your anxieties and fears and meet your expectations.
To enter into a personal relationship with Christ demands a knowledge of Scripture, above all the Gospel, where the Lord speaks with us.
These words are not always easy, but entering into them, entering into dialogue, knocking at the door of the word saying to the Lord, ‘Open,’ we truly find the words of life.
This conversation with the Lord in Scripture should take place not only individually, but also within in the community of the Church, where Christ is always present, in the communion of the liturgy, within the very personal encounter of the Eucharist and in the sacrament of reconciliation.
Only in this way can we personally know Jesus, and we can also communicate this friendship to others. The more we are great friends of Jesus, the wider we can open our hearts to others so that they too can be truly young, in other words, so they too can have before them a great future.
Announce Christ the Lord, hope of the world. Be united among yourselves, help each other to live and to grow in the Christian faith so as to be valiant witnesses of the Lord.

Be united, but not closed. Be humble, but not fearful. Be simple, but not naive. Be thoughtful, but not complicated. Enter into dialogue with others, but be yourselves.
Each one of you, if you stay united to Christ and the Church, can do great things.
