Pope Francis asks to stop the "brain drain"


The fact that young people migrate to acquire experiences abroad is enriching; however, the fact that they have to leave because their own country lacks job opportunities is a problem.
The pope spoke to a group of 150 students who came to Rome to attend the IV World Congress on the Pastoral Care of International Students, speaking about how to care for students abroad.
"Society is called to offer the new generations valid job opportunities to avoid the so-called 'brain drain.'"

At the same time Pope Francis asked young people to control their excessive ambition of success. This, he warned, can provoke selfishness and indifference to the suffering of others.
"Even among the young, a sad reality is the rise of a globalization of indifference which makes a person incapable of feeling compassion at the outcry of the poor."

The pope calls for responsibility on two fronts. First, he asked institutions to invest in youth and for young people to think of everyone and to work for the common good of their societies.
