The Pope made this observation as he concluded today’s general audience with his traditional greeting to the young, the sick and newlyweds.

“Mary helps us, dear young people […] to affirm each day your faith in Christ,” he said.

The Holy Father voiced a prayer that Our Lady would obtain comfort and serenity for the sick. And he wished her encouragement on newlyweds, “to translate into daily life the commandment of love.”
