In a letter read out at the synod closing Mass, bishops wrote to young people "our frailties and sins must not be an obstacle for your trust."
"Our weaknesses should not deter you," wrote the synod fathers in a letter published Oct. 28. "The Church is your mother; she does not abandon you."
The Mass in St. Peter's Basilica concluded the 2018 Synod of Bishops on young people, the faith, and vocational discernment which began Oct. 3.
Pope Francis asked young people for forgiveness on behalf of all adults in his homily at the Mass.
