Don't be silent, let your voice be heard: Pope to youth on Palm Sunday

pope-Francis-700-04

Pope Francis has told the young people not to remain silent and let their voices be heard, even in the face of corrupt or silent elders.

Pope made the request in his message on the Palm Sunday Mass. "The temptation to silence young people has always existed. There are many ways to silence young people and make them invisible. There are many ways to sedate them, to keep them from getting involved, to make their dreams flat and dreary, petty and plaintive," Pope said.

Reports said that at the end of Mass, the pope and cardinals in red robes led a solemn procession clutching elaborately braided palm fronds as they walked through the throngs, followed by the papal blessing of palm fronds and olive branches.
