POPE FRANCIS: PRAYER VIGIL WITH YOUNG PEOPLE: "BE THE AGENTS OF CHANGE" (4)” “” “

Nearing the conclusion of his meditation Pope Francis said: "In your young hearts, you have a desire to build a better world. I have been closely following young people who throughout the world want to be the agents of change. Please don’t let others be the agents of change. May you be the agents of change. Through you, future enters into the world." "I encourage you, in an orderly, peaceful and responsible manner, motivated by the values ​​of the Gospel, to continue overcoming apathy and build the future. But the question remains: Where do we start? What are the criteria for building a more just society? Mother Teresa of Calcutta was once asked what needed to change in the Church. Her answer was: you and I!" "And now in silence, I want each one of you to ask yourselves: shall I be the first one? Where do I start? Speak to your own hearts, so that Jesus may tell you whence to start." After a moment of silence and meditation with the youths of Copacabana, Pope Francis concluded: "Dear friends, never forget that you are the field of faith! You are Christ’s athletes! You are called to build a more beautiful Church and a better world", an invitation and a good wish that young people welcomed with a warm applause.
