Pope Francis to Youth: "Have a Great Soul!"

"To you [young people],
who are at the beginning of the journey of life,
I ask: have you thought about the talents
that God has given you?
Have you thought about how
you can put them at the service of others?
Don't bury your talents!
Bet on big ideals,
those ideals that enlarge the heart,
those ideals that will make your talents fruitful.
Life is not given to us
so that we can keep it jealously for ourselves,
but is given to us so that we may donate it.
Dear young people, have a great soul!
Don't be afraid to dream great things!"

--Pope Francis
