Young people around the world send Christmas greetings to Pope Benedict XVI

.- The president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli, explained this week that young people around the world can now send Christmas greetings to Pope Benedict XVI from the website Pope2you.net.

Speaking on Vatican Radio, the archbishop noted that in addition to being able to send the Holy Father a message, young people can also “send e-cards to their friends with a Christmas picture related to the life of the Holy Father.” “We want this Christmas atmosphere to be a more dynamic, beautiful, profound and ecclesial encounter between the youth and the Pope,” he said.

We have been surprised at how young people have welcomed this initiative,” Archbishop Celli added. “During the first 15 days since the site was launched, we had almost five million visits. This means that with this site we have found a language understandable for the youth of today.”

The archbishop also said that users have sent some 200,000 e-cards.
