It is always Christ who sends. But whom does he send? You, young people, are the ones he looks upon with love. Christ, who says: 'Follow me,' wants you to live your lives with a sense of vocation. He wants your lives to have a precise meaning and dignity.

Pope John Paul II, Manila, Philippines, 1995
