Pope Francis to university students: keep hope alive
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Friday visited one of Rome's major institutions of higher education today: the UniversitĂ degli studi "Roma 3", which has an enrollment of roughly 40 thousand students.
The Holy Father fielded four questions, each one from a student at a different level of study and in a different department, from post-graduates to married professionals in continuing formation to young undergrads from the business school and the arts and sciences.
One of the students was Nour Essa, a 31 year-old married mother and a refugee from Syria. She came to Rome with her family via Lesbos, making the last leg of her journey with Pope Francis, himself, aboard the Papal plane in 2016.
