The Pope made reference to the two saints, whose feast day is today, when he concluded the general audience with his traditional greetings to youth, the ill and the newly married. 

“Dear young people, like these faithful servants of the Gospel, I invite you to make your following of Jesus ever more strong and convinced, to be true witnesses in this society,” he said. 

The Holy Father encouraged the sick to follow the saints’ example and “to make your own the sentiments of Christ, to find comfort in him, who continues his work of redemption in the life of every person.” 

Finally, he urged newlyweds to “discover every day in conjugal life the mystery of God who gives himself for the salvation of all, so that your love is ever more true, lasting and solid toward others.”
