Rome, February 7 - Pope Benedict XVI on Thursday
said the Catholic Church believes in the potential of the
world's young people but warned of the risks of youth
marginalization due to the ''increasing difficulties'' in the
work sphere.
In comments made during a plenary session of the Pontifical
Culture Council, the pope said that political and economic
instability were making it increasingly hard for the young to
find jobs, increasing the risk of them being sidelined from
society.
''The uncertainty and the fragility which characterize many
young people often pushes them to the sidelines, making them
almost invisible and absent from historical and cultural
processes of society,'' Benedict said.
A world that did not give its young a future risked having
no future itself, he said.
''If the young no longer hoped and progressed, if they did
not put their energies, vitality, their capacity to anticipate
the future, into the historical dynamics, we would see humanity
withdrawing into itself, devoid of faith and a positive attitude
towards the future.
''The church has faith in the young, it hopes in them and
in their energies, it needs them and their vitality to continue
to live with renewed impulse the mission bestowed upon them by
Christ,'' the pope said.
