Pope gifts souvenir to Synod participants

Pope Francis on Saturday presented all the participants in the XV Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops with a souvenir to remind them of their involvement in the October 3 to 28 world gathering regarding young people.

The souvenir is a rectangular bas-relief in bronze in a case depicting Jesus and the young beloved disciple.  A creation of Italian artist Gino Giannetti, the souvenir was made in the Vatican mint.

The gift was personally handed by the Pope to the Synod Fathers and other participants in the Atrium of the Synod hall before the start of the last working session on Saturday, after a group photo.

The Synod of Bishops on the theme, “Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment”, is concluding on Sunday, October 28, with a Mass by Pope Francis in St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.
