In a memorable encounter in the nation’s Pontifical University, Pope Francis had a heart-felt dialogue with the Filipino youth, a demographic that makes up more than 40% of the country’s population. With the many problems facing the youth in this region – homelessness, school dropouts, sex trafficking and prostitution – this was a critical engagement for Pope Francis, recognizing these young people as the future of the Catholic Church in the Philippines and the entire world. He said, “what is the most important lesson to learn in university and in life? To learn how to love.”
