Angelus Address: On Palm Sunday and Diocesan Youth Day, Pope Invites Young People to Reflect on the Apostolic Exhortation Christus Vivit

April 14, 2019. And ‘to Pray the Rosary for Peace, Particularly in the Holy Land and in the Middle East’

At the end of the Celebration of Palm Sunday of the Passion of the Lord, Pope Francis prayed the midday Angelus with those gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

Before the Angelus:

 Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I greet you all who took part in this celebration and those who joined us through various means of communication. This greeting is extended to all young people who, around their Bishops, celebrate Youth Day in every diocese throughout the world. Dear young people, I invite you to make your own and to live in everyday life, the indications of the recent Apostolic Exhortation Christus Vivit, fruit of the Synod that also involved many of your contemporaries. In this text, each one of you can find fruitful ideas for his/her life and path of growth in the faith and in service to brothers.

In the context of this Sunday, I wished to offer all of you, gathered in St. Peter’s Square, special Rosary beads. These beads in olive wood were made in the Holy Land expressly for last January’s World Youth Day at Panama and for today’s Youth Day. Therefore, I renew to young people and to all my appeal to pray the Rosary for peace, particularly for peace in the Holy Land and in the Middle East.

And now we turn to the Virgin Mary so that She will help us to live Holy Week well.

Angelus Domini . . .
