The Pope made this recommendation today at the traditional conclusion of the general audience, in his greeting to youth, the sick and newlyweds.

“I invite you, dear young people, to be docile to the action of the Holy Spirit, given to believers in the sacraments of baptism and confirmation,” he said.

The Pontiff noted the Spirit’s role in comforting those who suffer, inviting the sick “to receive the Consoling Spirit, so that he will assist you in difficulties and help you to transform suffering into a pleasing offering for the good of your brothers.”

Finally, he wished for newlyweds “that the life of your family is always nourished by the fire of the Spirit, who is the Love itself of God.”
