Young Catholic who greeted Benedict XVI in Britain becomes a priest

"Holy Father, for many of us, before today you were a face on television or a picture in a church,” Uche said.

“But today we behold you face to face, and on behalf of the Catholic youth of this great nation I would like to express my profound and heartfelt gratitude for your visit. Thank you, and may God bless you.”

With that, Uche was led over to the pope, who patted him on the shoulder and then clasped his hand as they exchanged a few private words."
