Catholic News Agency has a story about Pope Francis urging the College of Cardinals to courageously persevere in finding new ways to evangelize.

"We have the certainty that the Holy Spirit gives his Church, with his powerful breath, the courage to persevere and to search for new ways to evangelize," Pope Francis said on March 15 in the Vatican's Clementine Hall.

He met with cardinals, including the elderly ones who did not participate in his election at 11 a.m. Friday.
