From his homily during Mass with bishops, priests, and religious in Manila
“I ask you to share the joy
and enthusiasm of your love for Christ
and the Church with everyone,
but especially with your peers.
Be present to young people
who may be confused and despondent,
yet continue to see the Church
as their friend on the journey
and a source of hope….
Proclaim the beauty and truth of the Christian message
to a society which is tempted by confusing presentations
of sexuality, marriage and the family.”
