Photo of the Day: June 13, 2017

This photograph released by the Vatican press office shows Pope Francis during an audience at the Paul VI audience Hall with children from middle schools across Italy belonging to the “Cavalieri,” a group for young people that promotes living the Christian life.

“Let Christ turn your natural optimism into Christian hope, your energy into moral virtue, your good will into genuine self-sacrificing love! This is the path you are called to take. This is the path to overcoming all that threatens hope, virtue and love in your lives and in your culture. In this way your youth will be a gift to Jesus and to the world.” –Pope Francis
