Pope Francis extended a special greeting to the young, as well as the sick and newlyweds, during his November 8, 2017, General Audience in St. Peter’s Square.

“I finally greet the young, the sick and newlyweds. May today’s memorial of the Saints Martyrs, whose relics are conserved here in Saint Peter’s Basilica, increase in you, dear young people, your attention to Christian witness also in difficult contexts; may it help you, dear people who are sick, to offer your sufferings to support the many persecuted Christians; and may it encourage you, dear newlyweds, to trust in the help of the Lord and not only in your own abilities.”
