Pope Francis: "I would like to ask you: Have you sometimes heard the voice of the Lord, which through a desire, a certain restlessness, invites you to follow him more closely? Have you heard it? ... I can't hear you... (Yes!) ... There you are!!  Have you had any desire to be apostles of Jesus?  Youth must spend itself for high ideals. Do you think so?  (Yes!) Do you agree? (Yes!) Ask Jesus what he wants from you and be brave! Be brave, ask Him! ... Thank you very much for the greetings, but also greet Jesus, call out 'Jesus' out loud. Shout 'Jesus!' Jesus!'"
