For reflection

179. It has happened to me to see young, beautiful trees that raised their branches ever higher into the sky; they looked like a song of hope. Later, after a storm, I found them fallen, lifeless. They extended their branches without taking root well in the land and, having few roots, they succumbed to the assaults of nature. That is why it is difficult for me to see that some people are proposing to young people to build a future without roots, as if the world has started now. In fact, “it is impossible for a person to grow, if he does not have strong roots that help him to stand firmly and cling to the earth. It is easy to go astray, when we have nowhere to cling, where to steady ourselves ”. (in ch. VI, n.179 Christus Vivit)

Post-synodal apostolic exhortation “Christus Vivit” of the holy Father Francisco to young people and to all the people of God
