“€œDear young people, may his conversion be an example to live your life with the criteria of the faith,”€ he exhorted.

The Pontiff also encouraged the sick: “€œMay his meekness sustain you, dear sick, when your suffering seems unbearable.”€

“€œAnd may his abandonment of the world”€™s calculations remind you, dear newlyweds, of the importance of the logic of love in the marital life you have undertaken,”€ he concluded.
