Pope to youth: We need to overcome unemployment together

2014-07-07

Nearly 20,000 young people from Abruzzo and Molise welcomed Pope Francis at the sanctuary of Castelpetroso. The Pope expressed his concern with unemployment, an issue close to home for the massive group.

POPE FRANCIS
"It's sad to find youth in this particular situation. They do not study, because they cannot, they don't have the possibility. Nor do they work. And this is the challenge that as a community, we all need to overcome. We need to move forward to overcome this challenge. We cannot resign ourselves to losing an entire generation of youth without the full dignity of a job.”

Pope Francis reminded them that, despite the crisis, youth remain brave before any challenges they face, they have hope, and are capable of expressing solidarity.

The Pope asked them not to fall into the "throw-away culture,” and to make definitive choices, and to choose a suitable path, in order to give meaning to their futures.

POPE FRANCIS
"Suitable path, choose the way ... what does this mean? Do not stand still, a young person cannot stand still! And go forward. This means to go towards something; because one can move around and not go forward, but just "wander,” one who goes in circles throughout life... But life is not made to go in circles, it's made to "go forward,” and this is your challenge!”

Pope Francis urged to continue forward with the same enthusiasm they showed during this event. Before leaving, he made his traditional request.

POPE FRANCIS
"Please, I ask you to pray for me: Please do so! And don't forget: "go forward with life,” never "go in circles”! Thank you!”
