VATICAN CITY, (Zenit.org).-Here is a translation of the conclusion the address Benedict XVI delivered from the window of his study, before praying the midday Angelus with some 40,000 tourists and pilgrims gathered in St. Peter's Square.
A Sublime and perfect model of sanctity is Mary Most Holy, who lived in constant and profound communion with Christ. Let us invoke her intercession, together with that of St. Benedict, so that the Lord will multiply also in our time men and women who, through an enlightened faith, witnessed in life, will be in this new millennium salt of the earth and light of the world.

Mother of the Redeemer, who in the month of August we remember in
the Assumption to Heaven, watch over those who are preparing to
participate in the World Youth Day. You, who always go before us in
the pilgrimage of faith, guide especially youths who are in search
of true good and authentic joy.
