Be close to them, and show them that you are concerned for them and understand their needs. This closeness will not only strengthen the institutions and communities of the Church, but will also help you to understand the difficulties they and their families are experiencing in their daily lives in society. 

Young people "challenge us to share the truth of Jesus Christ clearly and in a way that they can understand,” according to the Pope.
