FULL TEXT Speech of Pope Francis in the Olympic Stadium - Saturday, May 25, 2024
Dear girls, dear children, boys and girls!
Here we are! Here we are! The adventure of GMB, World Children's Day, has begun. We have gathered here at the Olympic Stadium, to give the "kick-off" to a movement of girls and boys who want to build a world of peace, where we are all brothers, a world that has a future, because we want to take care of environment that surrounds us. “Beautiful world”, says your song. Thanks for this!
In you, children, everything speaks of life, of the future. And the Church, which is mother, welcomes you, accompanies you with tenderness and hope. Last November 6, I had the joy of welcoming several thousand children from many parts of the world to the Vatican. That day you brought a wave of joy; and you told me your questions about the future. That meeting left an imprint on my heart and I understood that that conversation with you had to continue, it had to be extended to many other children and young people. And this is why we are here today: to continue to dialogue, to ask questions and answers.
(POPE FRANCIS' Speech starts at the 1:36:00 Mark on the Video Below in English)
I know you are sad about the wars. I ask you: are you sad about the wars? [children respond]: “Yes!” – “I don't hear” – “Yes!”. Today I received children who fled from Ukraine who were in so much pain from the wars. Some of them were injured. Is war a beautiful thing? [the children reply]: “No!”. You can't hear it. [the children reply]: “No!”. And peace, is it a beautiful thing? [the children answer]: “Yes!”. I like feeling like you're children. You are saddened because many of your peers cannot go to school. There are girls and boys who cannot go to school. They are realities that I also carry in my heart, and I pray for them. We pray for the children who cannot go to school, for the children who suffer from wars, for the children who have nothing to eat, for the children who are sick and no one cares for them.

A question. Listen carefully. Do you know what the motto of this World Children's Day is? Do you know what the motto is? The motto is a phrase taken from the Bible: "Behold, I make all things new." Have you listened to it? [the children answer]: “Yes!”. “Behold, I make all things new.” Shall we say it together? [All together]: “Behold, I make all things new.” Another time: “Behold, I make all things new.” This is the motto. It's beautiful. Think: God wants this, everything that is not new passes away. God is new. The Lord always gives us news.
Dear children, let's move forward and have joy. Joy is health for the soul. Dear girls and boys, Jesus in the Gospel said that he loves you. A question: does Jesus love you? You can't hear it! [the children respond]: “Yes! And the devil, does he love you? [the children reply]: “No!”. Well done! Courage and forward.

Now, all together, if you want, let's make a prayer to the Mother, to the Mother of Heaven.

Recite Hail Mary

God bless you! God bless you!
