Youth: April Prayer Intention of Pope Francis
6 April 2017 | Australia
We are all invited to join with Pope Francis and his worldwide prayer network in praying this month's intention: Young people: that they might know how to respond generously to the vocation God has given them, and immerse themselves in the great causes of the world.

Text of April video:
'I know that you, young people, don’t want to be duped by a false freedom, always at the beck and call of momentary fashions and fads. I know that you aim high. Is that true, or am I wrong?
Don’t leave it to others to be the protagonists of change.
You, young people, are the ones who hold the future! I ask you to be builders of the world, to work for a better world. It is a challenge, yes it is a challenge. Do you accept it?
Pray with me that young people may respond generously to their own vocation and mobilize for the great causes of the world.'
