Rome, August 2. (askanews) – The risk to be taken and the model to be fascinated, which the Pope proposes to the young people of Medjugorje, is that of Mary, who with her “yes” let herself be involved and risked, “with no other guarantee that certainty of being the bearer of a promise “. His Behold the Servant of the Lord (Lk 1:38) – says Francis – is “the most beautiful example that tells us what happens when man, in his freedom, abandons himself in the hands of God”. The final invocation is therefore to the Virgin: “Mary is the Mother who watches over us her children who walk in life often tired, needy, but with the desire that the light of hope not go out. This is what we want: that light of hope does not go out. “
And so here is the strongest message that the Pope takes from Christus Vivit – Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation, and returns to the young: “Run attracted by that much loved Face, which we adore in the Holy Eucharist and recognize in the flesh of the suffering brother. The Spirit Saint push you in this race forward. The Church needs your momentum, your intuitions, your faith (ibid., 299) “.
