Pope Benedict XVI offers a young worshipper Holy Communion during his installation Mass on April 24, 3005. In his homily, Benedict made a direct appeal to the young: ``And so today with great strength and great conviction, on the basis of long personal experience of life, I say to you, dear young people: Do not be afraid of Christ! He takes nothing away, and he gives you everything. When we give ourselves to him, we receive a hundred-fold in return. Yes, open, open wide the doors to Christ _ and you will find true life.''
