‘Generation Benedict’ honors Pope Emeritus
March 11, 2013
During the season of Lent, “Generation Benedict,” an online initiative, is presenting 40 stories of young people whose lives have been influenced by the Pope Emeritus. “At a time when I was looking to learn more about the Catholic faith and deepen my relationship with Jesus, his speeches and writings really helped my understanding, and my faith has grown,” said Lisette Carr, who helped start the initiative. “He specifically addressed young people on several occasions, reminding us that we are all called to be holy. We’re all called to be saints. And he challenged us to find out who God is calling us to be.”
