Vocations “come and follow me”

Meeting with Pope Francesco

Last Friday, the pope visited the Saint of Assisi, S. Francis, from who he got the name; in the morning, during Mass he asked the Lord graces for all the Christian people in the world, so they may have the courage to follow S. Francis example, in his poverty, chastity and obedience to the Father, through the Son. With special concern to the Holy Land and Syria, Pope Francis prayed peace for the whole world, reminding us, that to achieve that place of peace, importance relies in love and respect to all peoples, and all of Creation, through the truths of our faith.
In the afternoon, he met the Umbria’s youth in S. Maria of the Angels: answering to some questions he invited all people not to be frightened to make definitive choices, because the Lord always leads us, and He never leaves us alone.
It was an unforgettable day which gave us all, once more, the opportunity to meditate about the example of S. Francis, with the whole Church, and, most importantly, in the place that saw him, his life, his teachings, and his legacy.
