First reflection

Pope Francis speaks a lot about joy. Pope Francis reminds us that life is beautiful when we live our good wishes with others.

Many times, in his writings and speeches Pope Francis encourages children and young people to dream. Without dreams, it is difficult to know what we really want, and we end up living a meaningless and boring life – the exact opposite of a happy life.  Happy life means taking seriously our beautiful and good hopes and dreams and working with others to live them.

Happy life means not giving up on our dreams and those of others.
