"Dear young people, we didn't come into this world to 'vegetate', to take it easy, to make our lives a comfortable sofa to fall asleep on. No, we came for another reason: to leave a mark... Jesus is inviting you, calling you, to leave your mark on life, to leave a mark on history, your own and that of many others as well."                    

                             -Pope Francis
