Transcriptions of the Addresses Given by Holy Father to the Participants of the UNIV Encounters
"You can be as leaven in the mass, those who are able to change
even the great metropolises, the great cities, the great intellectual
centers. You can bring a better future because within human realities
everything is accomplished through the person, and it is the person
who accomplishes it.
Of course if the person is carried by the power of God, in the grace of God, if he walks with Him, he or she is then capable of changing the world. Let the final word of this UNIV be this wish: that you better this world." (John Paul II, UNIV 1982)
We want to assure the Pope that his words will be the subject of our reflections throughout this week; his messages have always been the high point of UNIV congresses.more
