Theological Notebook: World Youth Day Quote

I loved this quote from an AP story on World Youth Day:
Sylvie Gueye, a 28-year-old human resources manager from Dakar, Senegal, said the trip was "a way to express my faith in God, and a chance to share my opinions with other people, to share our culture, too."

She said she was eager to see the pope, but that wasn't all.

"Yes, he is a great man, we want to see him, but the main reason is to see how Jesus Christ lives in others, even if they are not Senegalese, to see how our religion is lived in other countries," she said.
Emphasis added. Exactly.
