Pope Francis & the People: Virtual Audience (ABC News/Nydia Hilaire)

In a virtual audience with Americans Pope Francis heard emotive testimonies, told youth to be courageous in the face of life’s hardships, and stressed the need for greater solidarity in world racked with many problems.

The videoconference was held Aug. 31, and was hosted by ABC News. It aired on ABC News’ “20/20” on Friday.

Members included students from the “Cristo Rey” Jesuit High School – a place for disadvantaged youth; a center for homeless in Los Angeles; and members of Sacred Heart parish in McAllen, Texas, which sits near the U.S.-Mexico border.

During the conference, Pope Francis listened to the stories of people from a variety of different backgrounds, including a bullied teen, a homeless youth and undocumented immigrants.
