OSV is making every effort to ensure on-time delivery, however, some areas may experience delays due to the impact of COVID-19 on carrier services.
To young Christians of the world, Pope Francis has a message for you: "Christ is alive, and he wants you to be alive!"
In his fourth apostolic exhortation, Christus Vivit, Pope Francis encapsulates the work of the 2018 synod of bishops on "Young People, The Faith, and Vocational Discernment.”
Pope Francis has always had a special relationship with young people, and in his fatherly love for you he shows that:
Christus Vivit is written for and to young people, but Pope Francis also wrote it for the entire Church, because, as he says, reflecting on our young people inspires us all.
“May the Holy Spirit urge you on as you run this race. The Church needs your momentum, your intuitions, your faith. We need them! And when you arrive where we have not yet reached, have the patience to wait for us.”
