The Pope ended today’s audience in St. Peter’s Square with his customary final greeting.

He encouraged young people to see Jesus “as the center of your existence,” and “to become builders of a world of genuine peace and solidary hope.”

The Holy Father acknowledged the “weariness and suffering” of the sick, and expressed his hope that they would “feel Christ next to you and that you will cooperate with him for the salvation of the whole world.”

Finally, he exhorted newlyweds, “who recently received in the sacrament of marriage the effusion of the Spirit of love, to find each day strength and courage in God, to thus live your vocation in fullness.”
