Pope tells young Italians: 'go against the tide'

August 28, 2013

Pope Francis met on August 28 with a group of young people from the Italian Diocese of Piacenza-Bobbio, and encouraged them to pursue the good, the true, and the beautiful.

The Pope told the group that he enjoyed being with young people because they are “bearers of hope.” He challenged them to build a future characterized by beauty, truth, and goodness. “Go against the tide, and that means making noise,” he said. “Go ahead.”
