Pope to Youth: As Summer Ends, Take Time to Pray

Francis encourages a strengthened dialogue with God as young people return to the routines of the school year

Pope Francis offered his own back-to-school message today at the end of the general audience, in his traditional greetings to youth, the sick, and newlyweds.

Noting today’s feast of the Exaltation of the Cross, the Pope said to young people: “As you return to the regular rhythms of life after the summer holidays, strengthen your dialogue with God as well, spreading his light and his peace.”

To those suffering illness, Pope Francis said, “Find comfort in the Cross of the Lord Jesus, who continues His work of redemption in the life of every man.”

Newlyweds were invited to “Make the effort to maintain a constant relationship with Christ crucified, that your love might be the more true, fruitful and lasting.”
