Thank you very much for your kind message to the youth and welcome Your Holiness! We hope that you'll have a wonderful time in leading the XXIII World Youth Day in Sydney. With our fervent prayers to you and to the youth that the Holy Spirit will guide them in the right direction and that they will indulge themselves with the Gospel for a bright and righteous future.

Golly Gee, I think you just put Superior Aussie back in their spot! NOT. If I tell you the sky is green and the grass is blue, would you believe me? No! You probably would though, if the Bible said to - and I think that's why he called you sheep. You KNOW the church has dealt with the pedophile priests issue in a DEPLORABLE way.

I hope that the youth all over the world will cry and shout out for the knowledge and understanding of God. I can see them all identified around their neck and wearing T-shirts and taking with them flags from where they belong and has a 100% entrance to the WYD08. I hope they will live to the expectation as the witness of the truth of the Gospel.

* The early founders of Christianity seem wholly unaware of the idea of a human Jesus

* The Jesus of the Gospels bears a striking resemblance to other ancient heroes and the figureheads of pagan savior cults

* Contemporary Christians are largely ignorant of the origins of their religion

* Fundamentalism is as strong today as it ever has been, with an alarming 44% of Americans believing that Jesus will return to earth in their lifetimes

This does not mean that it is enough for anyone to read the Bible and to be identified in order to understand the teachings of God, the worship to be restored and to be a living witness. "Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue but in deed and truth" (I Jn 3:18).

More than anything else, we pray that this World Youth Festival the successes will be achieved and inspire us with a renewed spirit and and let nothing erode our confidence that God shall help us through the Holy Spirit with a strong faith to enable us keep obeying His commandments through the preaching of His messengers on earth. More wisdom, power and strenght especially to our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI!

As the future of the world lies on the youth of today, we continue to abound in hope that the prospect of the Church's reaping successes remains bright as ever with the help of the Holy Spirit and the Lord's messengers in mission. "You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, And called from its farthest regions.'Fear not, I will help you'" (Is 41:9-13).

If you are sick ask the Lord for his healing power. The best doctor to our sickness is God. The doctors in the hospitals are only instruments. Jesus is the real healer.

"Then at the Lord's command Moses gave this order to the Israelites:'What the tribe of the descendants of Joseph is saying is right. This is what the Lord commands for Zelophehad's daughters: They may marry anyone they please as long as they marry within the tribal clan of their father. No inheritance in Israel is to pass from tribe to tribe, for every Israelite shall keep the tribal land inherited from his forefathers. Every daughter who inherits land in any Israelite tribe must marry someone in her father's tribal clan, so that every Israelite will possess the inheritance of his fathers. No inheritance may pass from tribe to tribe, for each Israelite tribe is to keep the land it inherits.'

Abram and Nahor both married. The name of Abram's wife was Sarah, and the name of Nahor's wife was Milcah; she was the daughter of Haran, the father of both Milcah and Iscah."

The Abrahamic belief holds that human life originates from incest, ie between the children of Adam and Eve
Noah brings aboard the Ark his wife, his three sons and their wives. After the Flood destroys all other life on Earth, the children of Noah's sons would have to reproduce among themselves, even though they were first cousins.

Incest alert!!!!
