Year of Faith

Faith isn’t a “thing”. Faith is a gift of doing and acting, moving you to a goal.

April 2013: Pope Francis to Young people
At the end of Mass on 3 April in St Peter’s Square, seeing that there were many young persons, the Pope addressed them:
“Take this certainty to all, the Lord is alive and walks beside us in our lives. This is your mission. Take this hope forward with you. Be anchored to this hope, this anchor that is heaven. Hold tight to the lifeline. Be anchored and carry this hope forward. You, witnesses of Jesus, carry forward the testimony that Jesus is alive and that this will give us hope; it will bring hope to this world that has grown a bit old because of wars, evil, and sin. Young people, go forward!
