Pope Greets Young People, Elderly, Sick and Newlyweds

‘The light and consolation of the Lord’s Easter are now close’

It may have been a dark and stormy morning for the Holy Father’s April 10, 2019, General Audience, but that didn’t keep Pope Francis from having warm words for special groups of the many pilgrims present under a sea of umbrellas in St. Peter’s Square:

“A special thought goes to young people, the elderly, the sick and newlyweds. We are concluding the Lenten journey. The light and consolation of the Lord’s Easter are now close. Full of joy and hope, let us prepare ourselves to make Christ’s sentiments our own and to live in fullness the days of the Passion and Glorification.”
