Moscow, February 17, Interfax - The Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill assigns great hopes to modern youth and urges Church to activate the work with it.

"I think that exactly the youth should be the advanced part of the Church, which would bear fresh and clear messages to the world, in which center would be certificates, that only in Christ the man finds completeness of a life," the Patriarch told at the meeting with the activists of Moscow youth organizations. He expressed the hope, that the present youth will be capable "to provide the future not only of the Church, but also the country and the whole world and the whole human family".

"As a Patriarch I do really hope for you very much, you're my allies. I'd like you very much to do what all of us must do today, reviving our people's life", told Patriarch Kirill. He's noticed that youth is "on the forward front line of the struggle for the future life and for the human".

"The Church must have the youth theme as a priority. We do it not only to attract more young men in our churches but for such remarkable concepts as chastity, cleanliness, strength of mind to be not only simply virtues, but the attractive ideal for youth," the Patriarch underlined.
