AMBASSADOR OF HOPE

Pope Francis affirms in a very prophetic way, “the world has to become contagious with hope, and we need to be equipped with the antivirus of Justice, Charity and Solidarity.”

“Young people, dream, rise up, take risks, look at life with a new smile, go forwards, do not be fearful!”
