Pope Francis’ message for the Jubilee of Mercy for young people was published today.

In the text, dated 6 January 2016, Solemnity of the Epiphany, the Holy Father addresses youth aged 13 to 16, many of whom intend to make a pilgrimage to Rome from 23 to 25 April, and who are “preparing to be Christians capable of making courageous choices and decisions, in order to build daily, even through little things, a world of peace.”

He encourages those who live in difficult situations not to lose hope as the Lord “has a great dream” for them that He wishes to come true.
