VATICAN CITY — In a world traumatized by war, young people gathered for World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland, gave strong signs of hope and brotherhood, Pope Francis said.

World Youth Day was a "prophetic sign for Poland and Europe" and took on a "global dimension" in a world threatened by a war fought in pieces, the pope said Aug. 3 at his weekly general audience.

"Precisely in this world at war, we need brotherhood, we need closeness, we need dialogue, and we need friendship. And this is the sign of hope: when there is brotherhood," he said.
