Pope Mass in Lima: Jesus walks in our cities rekindling hope

He said, "I began my pilgrimage among you by speaking of Peru as a land of hope. A land of hope because of its biodiversity and the beauty of its landscapes, which help us to discover the presence of God. A land of hope because of its rich traditions and customs, which have shaped the soul of this people. A land of hope for its young people, who are not the future but the present of Peru."
