 “Instead of tearing questions, we prefer easy answers that Anesthetize. Seek and risk! »

“Have the Courage to replace Fears with Dreams”

“The Lord has called you by your Name since the beginning of your life, called that means loved, just as you are”

“If God calls you by your Name, you are a face for Him”

“Many today know your Name, it is treated by the Networks. Some insinuate that they believe in you. These are the illusions of the virtual. Many are vain and superfluous things that leave us empty inside”

“Call the others by their Name!” »

“Christ does not point His finger, but stretches out His arms. Jesus shows it to us on the Cross. He invites you in. It hosts. It frees the heart and leaves a Joy that does not die out”

“Call Jesus by His name, entrust Him with your questions, your Joys and your Worries”

“God is not a Search Engine but the True Friend”

” The Secret? Stay Connected to the Lord”.

Pope Francis to students: “Go further, Higher”

“Instead of Heartbreaking questions we prefer easy answers that Anesthetize.” From the outset, this Wednesday, Pope Francis clearly announces his position to the Academics of the Portuguese Catholic University.

Indeed, he does not hide that the future is full of obstacles, in particular with the risk of “Ecological Destruction” to come. However, his speech is far from adopting a Defeatist or Pessimistic Tone.

The role of Catholic Education, according to him, is to make the link, to remember that Social Justice, Ecology and Spirituality are interdependent and must be resolved together. It is to those who have the privilege of achieving Higher Education that belongs the responsibility to act and to be Actors for progress, and Agents of change. On the initiative of the Pope, a Global Educational Pact has been drawn up with 7 Inspiring Lines.

“Seek and Risk.” These two verbs, repeated several times by Pope Francis, could resonate gravely but are in fact a Tremendous Encouragement for the Younger Generations.

“So, have the Courage to replace Fears with Dreams!”
