Youth, which is part of “The Pope Video” series promoted by the Vatican, was released Tuesday, April 4. Young people have in their hands the challenge of building a more just future, a future of solidarity. Let us support them. Let’s pray with the Pope that our youth will respond and work generously for the changes the world needs.
Every month we will see a new two-minute video from Pope Francis with his intentions and a motivating message. The project is an initiative of Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network (Apostleship of Prayer), that aims to spread the Pope’s monthly intentions on the challenges facing Humanity.
The Pope tells us in this video:
I know that you, young people, don’t want to be duped by a false freedom, always at the beck and call of momentary fashions and fads. I know that you aim high. Is that true, or am I wrong?
Don’t leave it to others to be the protagonists of change. You, young people, are the ones who hold the future! I ask you to be builders of the world, to work for a better world.
It is a challenge, yes it is a challenge. Do you accept it?
Pray with me that young people may respond generously to their own vocation and mobilize for the great causes of the world.
