Don’t get tired and don’t let yourselves be overcome sometimes by prophets of doom or by exhaustion, said Pope Francis to the members of Christ of Nazareth Home, whom he congratulated in a video message on the 10th anniversary of its foundation, reported “Vatican News” in Spanish.
“When you are tired, sit down, look at the Virgin and go on,” said the Holy Father to the young people of the Home in Lujan, Argentina.
In the video, the Pontiff focuses on help to young people and the important work done for them so that they have a future. “They say that young people have the future in their hands, and it’s true, but they must be helped so that their hands don’t fall so that they have it in their hands and take it forward. And you do that with young people; you help them so that that future they have in their hands continues going forward,” he added.
The Holy Father also thanked the youngsters for their work of help and solidarity with the neediest. “You are sowing much good in the Homeland,” he said.
Finally, Pope Francis asked them not to forget to pray for him, because, he stressed, “I need it.”
