|Pope Francis urged the Salesian Sisters "to be everywhere a prophetic witness
and educative presence through an unconditional welcome of the young."
The Pope encouraged the sisters to be "prophetic witnesses" and to recognize that generational needs are changing. Additionally, the Pope inspired the sisters to transform "their houses into environments for evangelization, implementing paths for change and pastoral conversion, and forming young people to become evangelizers of other youth."
Finally, he exhorted the sisters to “be missionaries of joy, witness to the values that are proper to (their) Salesian identity, particularly the value of encounter,” describing the latter as a "spring” from which they “can draw that love that revitalizes that passion for God and for the young."
