Young people have a restlessness in their hearts and Jesus is the answer.

According to Vatican Radio, Pope Francis stressed this in greetings he sent to the ‘Together 16’ Evangelical Christian gathering which took place on Saturday in Washington, DC. For the event, thousands of people filled the National Mall.

Restlessness

In a video-message released before the event, the Holy Father addressed what will alleviate young people’s “restlessness.”

“Young men and women,” Francis said in the message, “I know there is something in your heart that moves you. And that makes you restless, because a young person who is not restless is an old person.”

“And you have youthfulness, and youthfulness breeds restlessness. What is your restlessness? Do you know what it is or do you not know? Do you want to know what your restlessness is?” the Pontiff continued, adding, “I invite you to … to find the One who can give you an answer to your restlessness.”

Answer … He waits

“And I assure you, you will not be frustrated. God does not leave anyone disillusioned. Jesus is waiting for you.”

Pope Francis concluded, reminding them, “He is the One who planted the seeds of restlessness in your heart. Give it a try! You don’t have anything to lose! Try it. Then you can tell me. Thank you!”
