GREETING OF HOLY FATHER FRANCIS
TO YOUNG ITALIANS AT THE CONCLUSION
OF HIS VISIT TO ST. FRANCIS' HOSPITAL
Rio de Janeiro
Wednesday, 24 July 2013
I now turn to our young Italian friends who are following the proceedings live from Maracanàzinho. I know that you have gathered there with many Brazilians of Italian origin and with your bishops to celebrate and to reflect on the person of Jesus and on the answers that only he can give to your questions about faith and life. Trust Christ, listen to him, follow in his footsteps. He never abandons us, not even in the darkest moments of our lives. He is our hope. Tomorrow in Copacabana we will have an opportunity to explore this truth more deeply, in order to shine his light on our lives. See you tomorrow!
