Pope Francis to publish a papal document about young people in March


On March 25, Pope Francis will travel to the Sanctuary of Loreto. It is traditionally believed that the walls there are from the house the Holy Family lived in.

There he will officially sign his next papal document. It will be an apostolic exhortation containing the conclusions of the Synod on to “Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment.”

It will be his sixth document. Pope Francis has already published two encyclicals; Lumen Fidei and Laudato si', and three apostolic exhortations: Evangelii Gaudium, Amoris Laetitia, and Gaudete et exsultate.

However, this future text will not be the last for the youth Synod. In June, many young people who participated in last October's assembly will return to Rome. They will coordinate what implementation or initiatives are taking place in their countries as a result of the Synod.
