Greetings from Pope to Young, Sick, Newlyweds

Memorial of St. Nicholas of Bari

Pope Francis offered a “special thought” to the young, the sick and newlyweds during his December 6, 2017, General Audience in Paul VI Hall.  He also noted it is the memorial of St. Nicholas of Bari, known for his kindness to the poor and children.  The Holy Father said:

“A special thought goes to the young, the sick and newlyweds. Today is the memorial of Saint Nicholas of Bari. Dear young people, place your search for God and His love above all else, dear people who are sick, may the example of the saints be of help and comfort in moments of greatest need; and you, dear newlyweds, with the grace of God make your union stronger and deeper every day.”
