Pope thanks WYD participants during Angelus. Asks all pilgrims to pray for them

2013-08-05

In  his first Angelus  since World Youth Day, Pope Francis recapped his successful trip toRio  de Janeiro and thanked all the young people that took part in the seven  day event. He also asked the faithful gathered atSt. Peters  Square to join him and pray for the participants.

POPE FRANCIS
"I want to ask you to pray with me, that the young people that participated in World Youth Day will be able to translate this experience into their daily journey, in their everyday conduct; and that they will be able to translate it in the most important choices of their life, responding to the personal call of the Lord.”

The Pope said that the message young people took away from WYD will help counter the effects of vanity and consumerism, which he descried as a "poison of emptiness.” He added that joy, though the Church and Jesus, is the true value with which to measure a person's life.

POPE FRANCIS
"True wealth is the love of God, shared with others. That love that comes from God and makes us share among ourselves, and makes us help one another. Those who experience this do not fear death, and instead receive peace of heart.”

After his liturgical remarks, Pope Francis issued a special greeting to pastors worldwide in honor of the Feast Day of St. John Mary Vianney, their patron saint. He also mentioned that on Monday Rome celebrates Our Lady, whom he has shown great devotion to during his papacy. And lastly, he recalled that Tuesday will mark 35 years since the death of Paul VI.
