Vatican City, 4 June 2014 (VIS) – After the Pope's catechesis he addressed, among others, the Polish pilgrims present and in particular the young people who meet each year in Lecnica, at the baptismal fonts of Poland to renew their adhesion to Christ and the Church. “This time”, said Francis, “enter deeply into and live the mystery of Jesus' divine sonship and – in Him – of all those who, through Baptism, participate in His life, death and resurrection. Reflect on what it means to be God's children and experience His love. Wish to live this love so as to bear witness to it before others”.
“Dear young people! Be brave! Respond with enthusiasm to God's love, as His beloved children; respond with trust when you return to the merciful Father as prodigal sons. Always rejoice in the grace of being God's children, and bring this joy to the world. May St. John Paul II, who began your journey to Lednica with you eighteen years ago, guide you and obtain all the necessary grace so that your young lives are full and generous”.
