“Jovens, look for the truth in everything without letting yourself be influenced by current trends or common thinking, by ‘likes’ [gostos] or by `followers´ [seguidores] on the social networks.

The Pope also told them not to be afraid, when necessary, to change and accept opinions and ways of thinking different from their own in everything that is not essential, always being available to listen and argue.
