Do not be afraid. Open wide the doors for Christ. To his saving power open the boundaries of states, economic and political systems, the vast fields of culture, civilization, and development. Do not be afraid. Christ knows what is in man. He alone knows it.
So often today man does not know what is within him, in the depths of his mind and heart. So often he is uncertain about the meaning of life on this earth. He is assailed by doubt, a doubt that turns to despair. We ask you therefore, we beg you with humility and trust, let Christ speak to man. He alone has the words of life - yes, eternal life.
Homily for the Inauguration of Pope John Paul II, October 22, 1978.
