Life is a precious gift and it comes to us with its challenges.

Do you know that the welfare of the world around you can be better because of you?

Do you like to walk on the footsteps of people who made the world a better one?

Do you realise that your life would become very interesting and fulfilling?



We the Synod Fathers

SynodFathers now address you, young people of the world, with a word of hope, trust and consolation. In these days, we have gathered together to hear the voice of Jesus, "the eternally young Christ", and to recognise in Him your many voices, your shouts of exultation, your cries, and your moments of silence.

We are familiar with your inner searching, the joys and hopes, the pain and anguish that make up your longings.

 1. Ready to accompany you

Now we want you to hear a word from us: we wish to be sharers in your joy,
so that your expetations may come to life. We PopeYouthSynodare certain that with your enthusiasm for life, you you will be ready to
get involved so that your dreams may be realised and take shape in your history.

Our weaknesses should not deter you; our frailties and sins must not be an obstacle for your trust. The Church is your mother; she does not abandon you; she is ready to accompany you on new roads, on higher paths where the winds of the Spirit blow stronger – sweeping away the mists of indifference, superficiality and discouragement.

2. You gaze towards love, beauty, truth and justice

When the world that God so loved, that he gave us his only Son, Jesus, is focused on material things, on short-term successes, on pleasures, and when the world crushes the weakest, you must help it to rise up again and to turn its gaze towards love, beauty, truth and justice once more.

For a month, we have walked together with some of you and with many others who have been united to us through prayer and affection.

We wish to continue the journey now in every part of the earth where the Lord Jesus sends us as missionary disciples.




 The Church and the world urgently need your enthusiasm.
Be sure to make the most fragile people, the poor and those wounded by life your traveling companions.

You are the present; be a brighter future.
