VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis on Sunday praised young people for their efforts to protect the Earth’s environment and told them to “be the critical conscience of society.”

Francis celebrated Mass at St. Peter’s Basilica with hundreds of young faithful to mark a day of celebration for youth in dioceses around the world.

” You have been given an exciting, but also challenging task,” the pontiff stated, “to stand tall when everything around you seems to be falling apart.” “

Francis expressed gratitude “for all the times when you cultivate and work to heal God’s wounds, work to protect the dignity of the weak, and spread the spirit for solidarity and sharing .”

He pointed out that many young people are critical of environmental pollution.

“We need this,” Francis said.

The pontiff stated that even in a world where “everything is about the present, which tends to suppress grand ideals, one has not lost the ability dream .”

” Be free and authentic, be the critic conscience of society,” Francis exhorted youth.

Social justice, care for the environment were his key messages during his pontificate.

The pope is expected to meet with young people from all over the world at the Catholic church’s jamboree in Lisbon, Portugal, in August 2023.
