Pope Francis encouraged youth in North Macedonia Tuesday to follow Mother Teresa's example and make something beautiful out of their lives.
"Each of you is called, like Mother Teresa, to work with your hands, to take life seriously and make something beautiful of it," Pope Francis said in Skopje May 7.
"You will encounter many, many unexpected twists and turns in life, but it is important to face them and find creative ways of turning them into opportunities," he added.
The pope answered questions from young people at an ecumenical and interreligious meeting at a pastoral center in Mother Teresa's hometown in North Macedonia.
