Pope Francis offered some special Christmas advice to young people, the sick, and newlyweds during his Dec. 27, 2017, General Audience in St. Peter’s Square.

“I am pleased to offer a special greeting to the young people, the sick and newlyweds,” said the Holy Father.

“Dear young people, know how to be strong in faith, looking to the Divine Child, Who in the mystery of Christmas offers Himself as a gift for the whole of humanity.”

“Dear sick , I wish you to see, in the vivid light of Bethlehem, the meaning of your suffering.”

“And I urge you spouses, to maintain consistent in building your family, love and dedication beyond any sacrifice.”
