Live in relationship with God the Father, Pope tells Pompei’s youth

February 10, 2016

Pope Francis has sent an audio message to the Territorial Prelature of Pompei in support of its Lenten youth initiative.

“Jesus asks us to do good for the sake of good,” he said. “He asks us to feel we are under the watchful gaze of our heavenly Father at all times and to live in relationship with Him – not in relationship with the opinion of others.”

“Living in the presence of the Father gives us a much deeper joy than worldly glory can give us,” he continued. “May our attitude this Lent be one of living in secret where the Father sees us, loves us and waits for us.”
