The Pope said this today during his traditional concluding remarks to end the general audience.

Addressing young people, the sick and newlyweds, he said, “Dear friends, may the Lenten season be a propitious occasion to translate our daily existence, according to the different situations in which each one of us finds himself, into the same sentiments of the Savior, who for us gave his life on the cross.”

The Pontiff expressed his hope that his listeners would find “comfort and support in [Christ’s] sacrifice offered for the salvation of the whole of humanity.”
