Pope's Good Friday message: Beware the "desert of godlessness"

The Pope, who turns 82 later this month, will pray that Christians would respond to the problem by growing in faith.

‘May we never question or mock serious things in life like a cynic,’ he will say.

‘Allow us not to drift into the desert of godlessness. Enable us to perceive you in the gentle breeze, see you in street corners, love you in the unborn child.’
