Chilled out Kiwi has lunch with Pope

Martin Leung-Wai, a 25-year-old  New Zealander who was one of 12 young people to share lunch with Pope Benedict said it “made my World Youth Day experience the experience of a lifetime”.

Leung-Wai, a 25-year-old from Auckland, said, “Having lunch with the Holy Father is something you tell your family and friends and future generations about”. When asked why he hesitated to say it was something you tell your grandchildren about, he said he was one of many at World Youth Day considering a vocation to the priesthood or religious life.

Leung-Wai also invited Pope Benedict to New Zealand.

“He was laughing,” the young man said.
