Pope Francis invites youth to have searching heart - Perspectives Daily

August 31, 2017
In his weekly catechesis this Wednesday, the Holy Father reflects on what it means to have a searching heart, a restless heart. It allows Jesus to come in and ignite one's life. At the end of the General Audience he announced his joint appeal with the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew I on the occasion of the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. It is celebrated on September 1st. The CCCB raised over $3.5 million for famine relief in parts of Africa. The Archbishop of Los Angeles hopes his brother bishops will financially support relief efforts in Texas.
