Pope Francis Urges Preparation for Advent

‘A particular thought goes to young people, the elderly, the sick and newlyweds.’

Pope Francis included a suggestion to the faithful at his November 28, 2018, General Audience in Paul VI Hall: Get ready for Advent.

“Next Sunday we will begin the liturgical season of Advent,” the Holy Father said. “Let us prepare our hearts to receive Jesus the Saviour; we acknowledge in Christmas Christ’s encounter with humanity, especially that humanity that still today lives on the margins of society, in need and in suffering.”

Francis also included “A particular thought goes to young people, the elderly, the sick and newlyweds.”
