Message, 25. July 2022

“Dear children! I am with you to lead you on the way of conversion, because, little children, with your lives you can draw many souls closer to my Son. You be joyful witnesses of God's word and love, and with hope in the heart which conquers every evil. Forgive those who inflict evil on you, and go on the way of holiness. I am leading you to my Son, for Him to be the way, the truth and the life for you. Thank you for having responded to my call.”

Message of the Holy Father to the participants of the Youth Festival, Medjugorje August 1-6, 2022

Dear young people, while you are resting in Jesus Christ these days, I entrust you all to the Blessed Virgin Mary, our heavenly Mother, so that by her intercession and example, you may take upon yourself the sweet and easy burden of following Christ. Let the gaze of God the Father who loves you accompany you, so that when you meet others, you can witness the peace that you will receive as a gift in return. I pray for that purpose and I bless you, and at the same time, I entrust myself to your prayers.

Brother Jozo Grbeš encouraged the youth: Be critical of those who have power, authority and positions

04.08.2022

"You are called to be different, to be different from the world in which you are called to live.  Like this woman, be critics of those who have power, authority and positions, those who decide the destinies of nations and the world, so that we can all go together towards the strength of faith and witness to the truth.  It is no less courageous to be a Christian today than it was in the first century.  In this age of 'alternative facts', the challenge is to find the truth."
