Youth without jobs drawn to terror, drugs - pope (2)

Take life like goalkeeper takes a ball,tells university students

Youth without jobs drawn to terror, drugs - pope (2)

Rome, February 17 - Jobless young people may be drawn to terrorism and drugs, Pope Francis told students and staff at Roma Tre University Friday. "In the end the bitterness of their hearts leads to addictions," he said, "or it leads to me...enlisting in a terrorist army, at least that way I have something to do and I give meaning to my life". Francis urged young people to "take life like a goalkeeper takes the ball, wherever it comes from". One of the greatest dangers facing the world is a "unity without differences", the pope said. "There is a risk of globalisation that fosters uniformity", he said. Rapid communication "does not prevent us saying No," the pontiff added, urging his listeners to "get used to dialogue at speed". The pope also said EU youth unemployment levels were "not fit for civilised countries" and that "perhaps not all the statistics on youth suicides are known". Jobless young people may be drawn to terrorism and drugs, the pope said. "In the end the bitterness of their hearts leads to addictions," he said, "or it leads to me...enlisting in a terrorist army, at least that way I have something to do and I give meaning to my life". Europe was "born of migrants" but today the Mediterranean has become a "tomb" for too many desperate people seeking a better life, the pope said. He urged his listeners not to "fear migrations" since they were a "challenge for the growth of society". Francis told his audience that countries should "make peace and make investments" on migrants. The "ideal" solution for migrants, he said, was to "welcome and integrate" them.
