12th WORLD YOUTH DAY
(AUGUST 21-24, 1997)
GREETING OF POPE JOHN PAUL II
TO THE YOUNG PEOPLE GATHERED IN FRONT OF
THE APOSTOLIC NUNCIATURE OF PARIS
Sunday, 24 August 1997
Unfortunately I have to leave Paris, after spending a wonderful Youth Day here. But one small consolation remains, that is, I am returning to Rome for the feast-day of St Louis, St Louis of the French.
So France is accompanying me to Rome. In the name of this great saint, St Louis, King of the French, I would like to thank everyone who helped prepare the World Youth Day.
I am very grateful, and I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay here in Paris, France. In Rome we will do what we can. Goodbye.
