Build your lives on Christ, our only and steadfast hope… Pope Francis gave this exhortation during his General Audience on Wednesday, April 14, 2021.

The Pope’s audiences are still being streamed privately from his apostolic library as Italy continues to combat the ongoing COVID19 health emergency.

During his final greetings, the Holy Father noted: “I address a cordial greeting to the Italian-speaking faithful. I hope that, in the atmosphere of Easter joy, you will be able to place yourselves at the service of the Gospel and of your brothers and sisters.”

As usual, the Roman Pontiff addressed special thoughts to the elderly, young people, the sick and the newlyweds.

“I encourage everyone to lead a generous existence, built on the Rock, that is, on Christ, our only and steadfast hope,” he appealed.

Pope Francis concluded, praying: “May God bless you all!”
