"Pope Benedict calls for more priests in Eucharistic congress address"
From the Canadian Press:
From his private chapel, the Pope blessed worshippers who gathered in Quebec City for the closing service of the 49th International Eucharistic Congress.
In his sermon, which he delivered in French, the Pope pleaded for "the gift" of new priests who could renew the aging Catholic Church, so "the people of God will never be missing ministers."
"I invite you to transmit the ministry's call to young boys, so they accept with joy and without fear, to respond to Christ," the Pope said.
"They will not be disappointed."
