    Help your young people rediscover the fundamental contribution of the faith in the unity of the continent, Pope Francis has encouraged European bishops.

    The Holy Father did so in a message from Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, on Francis’ behalf, to Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, President of the Council of European Episcopal Conferences (CCEE). The group is meeting September 13-16, 2018 in Poznan, Poland.

    The letter was read aloud toward the start of the conference yesterday.[​IMG]

    In the message, he urged them to “find new ways to achieve a generous and responsible solidarity, identifying paths of fraternal pastoral collaboration, in the wake of the spiritual values which have shaped the thought, art and culture of Europe.”

    The Holy Father’s hope, was also expressed, “that the important meeting will contribute to strengthening the bonds of communication between the European bishops, giving further stimulus to the mission of the Church, especially to young people, helping them to re-discover the fundamental contribution of faith to the unity of the European continent.”

    Pope Francis concluded, imparting his Apostolic Blessing and asking for their prayers.
