Pope sends video greeting to young students: change the status quo – Vatican News

Pope Francis greets members of the Italian Catholic Movement’s student youth movement with a short video: Don’t forget to promote dialogue between grandparents and young people.

(Vatican News Network)Pope Francis recorded a short video message for the Movimento per gli Studenti dell’Azione Cattolica (Movimento per gli Studenti dell’Azione Cattolica) training event. The theme of this event is: Students change the status quo. “Is this true? Can you change the situation? Be careful. Some things are good and make you humble in circles. But some things are bad and that needs to change,” said the pope.

The Pope’s short video to the young students was recorded during his interview with Bishop Claudio Giuliodori, who is in charge of ecclesiastical affairs of the Italian Catholic Association. In the video, the Pope mentioned two situations: one is a good situation that makes people down-to-earth and humble; the other makes people feel suffocated in a negative vortex, leading to flat and single thinking. In the second reality, people often say: “That’s the way it has always been done.” The Pope pointed out that this situation must change because it “traps” people.

The Pope not only encourages young people to dream big and change the status quo, but also exhorts them to “accept the help of others and always have a dialogue with the elders”. Conversations between young people and their grandparents are critical. The Pope concluded by thanking the young students for what they do, because “students make a difference”. The Pope concluded by saying: “Go forward, with courage. You pray for me, and I pray for you. May the Lord bless you.”
