A Love which is Courageous, Generous, and Real

January 15, 2016

The following is an excerpt from a message Pope Francis delivered to teens yesterday:

“Don’t be taken in by the messages of hatred or terror all around us. Instead, make new friends. Give of your time and always show concern for those who ask your help,” he said.

He urged them to grow closer to Jesus and draw nourishment from the sacraments. Becoming more merciful during the Year of Mercy means not only growing “in a love which is courageous, generous and real,” it is means greater spiritual growth, too.

“You are preparing to be Christians capable of making courageous decisions in order to build daily, even through little things, a world of peace,” he said.
