At the Solmoe shrine, birthplace of the first Korean priest, Francis met for the first time the young people who came from all over the continent for Asian Youth Day. He offered a long off-the-cuff reflection (partially in English) on the vocation of young people, Korean reunification, confusion and exploitation. The pope offered young people three "rules of life" to be authentic witnesses of the Gospel: "Rely on the strength that Christ gives you, pray every day and be guided by the truth." The warmth of Asian youth "makes us perceive the glory of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit." A young man from Hong Kong asked, "What can we do to show China Christ's love as well?"
