The Pope was speaking as he signed his post-synodal exhortation on young people

We should not become spiritually lazy but respond to God with sincere hearts, the Pope added

Cardinal Ricardo Ezzati submitted his resignation in May 2018

We should ‘obey and abandon’ ourselves to the will of God, even in moments of difficulty and trial, the Pope said

‘The Lord is purifying his Bride and is converting us all to himself,’ the Pope said

It is time ‘to stop, to focus on what is essential, to fast from the unnecessary things’

Pope Francis warned against judging others without first juding ourselves

‘They don’t need our story, they need to take action and they need to take action now,’ one survivor said

The Pope said he wanted the event to be ‘an act of strong pastoral responsibility before an urgent challenge of our time’
