#ShortNews: Be transformed into missionary disciples

Pope Francis has sent a message to participants of Cuba’s Second National Youth Day which is celebrated, this year, on August 1. In his letter Pope encouraged Youth Day participants to be, like Mary: “witnesses of His Resurrection” and willing to let themselves be transformed into missionary disciples, “so that many other young people may discover the presence of the Lord Jesus, listen to His call, grow in His friendship, and, in this way, live an existence founded on faith and mercy.”

“With these sentiments”, the message concludes, “the Holy Father prays to God our Lord, through the intercession of the Our Lady of Charity of El Cobre, to protect all young Cubans with His infinite love, accompanying them in all moments of their lives.”

Cuba’s Second National Youth Day is celebrated throughout the island in all of its Catholic dioceses.
