My message to young people:
Just like Blessed Cardinal Alojzije Stepinac, you must keep fighting for your beliefs, even if it does not look like you will win because like Stepinac, your courage will inspire future generations. Keep fighting the good fight. Keep running the race. And, above all else, KEEP THE FAITH.
