POPE VISITS YOUTH PARTICIPATING IN “SUMMER YOUTH IN THE VATICAN”
From Holy See Press Office director, Matteo Bruni:
“This morning, shortly after 9.00 am, the Holy Father visited the children and young people participating in the Summer Youth in the Vatican that is taking place these days. He met them as they were having breakfast in the atrium of the Paul VI Hall. After visiting the different tables, the Pope went to the spaces set up in the hall for games and talked with the participants.
Later, sitting with the children, he encouraged them to make new friends: ‘people who only know how to have fun alone are selfish, to have fun you have to be together, with friends!’
Before returning to Santa Marta around 10 am, Pope Francis greeted the animators and organizers individually and thanked them for their work.
