Blowin' in the wind Print E-mail
Thursday, 07 August 2008
Dear young people. . . . A representative of yours [Bob Dylan] has just said on your behalf that the answer to the questions of your life "is blowing in the wind". It is true! But not in the wind which blows everything away in empty whirls, but the wind which is the breath and voice of the Spirit, a voice that calls and says: "come!"

You asked me: How many roads must a man walk down before you call him a man? I answer you: one! There is only one road for man and it is Christ, who said: "I am the way." He is the road of truth, the way of life.

Pope John Paul II, "Address to Young People of Bologna" (1997).  The Holy Father spoke after Bob Dylan sang.
