Today Pope Francis gave five addresses in less than 10 hours.  In his final day in Rio de Janeiro for World Youth Day, he did not disappoint.  He is known for his crisp, clear and emphatic words, spoken in down-to-earth language (sometimes even making new words, but that’s a story for another day).

What follows are the words he spoke to the youth of the world today, often shouting them out and using his hands to make his point. The youth responded with equal emotion. But these words aren’t solely for the young. They are for all of us. Let’s take them to heart! And pass them along. 

Which of Pope Francis' words have struck you most?
