Vatican City, August 28 - During a closed-door
meeting with 500 young pilgrims in Saint Peter's Basilica on
Wednesday, Pope Francis encouraged the crowd to "swim against
the tide" and to say no to drugs and alcohol.
The pontiff told the crowd that he was meeting with them on
their pilgrimage to celebrate the Year of Faith for "selfish
reasons".
He told the group that he liked being with youth "because
you have in your heart a promise of hope. You are bearers of
hope. You, in fact, live in the present, but are looking at the
future. You are the protagonists of the future, artisans of the
future".
"Make the future with beauty, with goodness and truth," the
pope said.
"Have courage. Go forward. Make noise," he told them.
