“You are the wealth of this land. Careful though! I did not say the hope of this land, but its wealth”. Thus the Pope addressed young people on Tuesday, 16 February, in José María Morellos y Pavón Stadium, Morelia. “You have asked me for a word of hope,” he continued, “and the one word I have to give you, which is the foundation of everything, is Jesus Christ. When everything seems too much, when it seems that the world is crashing down on you, embrace his Cross, draw close to him and please, never let go of his hand, even if they are dragging you; and, if you should fall, allow him to lift you up”.
