Pope Francis has urged young Catholics to be "messengers of Christ's love among young peers" in his New Year advice.

"In this New Year, I invite you to welcome and share the tenderness of God every day," he said.

This was at the heart of Pope Francis' New Year's advice to young people, the sick, and newlyweds during his General Audience in the Vatican's Paul VI Hall, his first General Audience of 2018.

Saying he had something special to convey to the young people, the sick and newlyweds, the Holy Father gave the following recommendations.

"Dear young people, be messengers of Christ's love among your peers."

"Dear sick, find in the caress of God, support in your suffering."

"And to you, dear newlyweds, be witnesses to the joy of the Sacrament of Marriage through your faithful and mutual love."
