FREDRICKA WHITFIELD, CNN ANCHOR: Some of the words from Pope John Paul II speaking to some of the young people in Madrid, Spain, right now. Let's listen in. It's his 99th visit outside of Italy
POPE JOHN PAUL II (through translator): Never be afraid to talk about Christ, for Christ is the real answer to all questions about the destiny of human times. It is urgent that you all who come of the apostles, for those of your own age, I know quite well that this is not easy to do. Quite often, we will be tempted to say as did the Prophet Jeremiah, and I quote, "O Lord, I don't know how to express myself, I am only a kid." But don't feel dismayed, because you are not alone. The Lord will never leave your side, will never cease accompanying you with a great and (UNINTELLIGIBLE) spirit.
