Pope Benedict in Glasgow

Friday, September 17, 2010
The Holy Father celebrated Mass in Bellahouston Park with 70,000 people in attendance. In his homily he once again addressed the "dictatorship of relativism" and called for a new evangelisation of culture. He held up the example of St. Ninian, who was "unafraid to be a lone voice" and again stressed the Christian heritage of Scotland, mentioning the three medieval universities founded by Popes.

Pope Benedict also addressed the young people of Scotland, calling them to "reject the glittering but superficial existence frequently proposed by today’s society and to put aside what is worthless and learn of your own dignity as children of God". He concluded with an ancient Gaelic Prayer and wished God's blessing upon the people of Scotland. The full text of his homily may be found here

He now heads south of the border and on to London.
