POPE FRANCIS’ EXHORTATION TO YOUTH

Dear young friends, do not let [masters of manipulation] exploit your youth to promote a shallow life that confuses beauty with appearances.  Realize that there is beauty in the labourer who returns home grimy and unkempt, but with the joy of having earned food for his family.  There is extraordinary beauty in the fellowship of a family at table, generously sharing what food it has.  There is beauty in the wife, slightly dishevelled and no longer young, who continues to care for her sick husband despite her own failing health.  Long after the springtime of their courtship has passed, there is beauty in the fidelity of those couples who still love one another in the autumn of life, those elderly people who still hold hands as they walk. Christus Vivit 183
