Pope Francis in Cagliari Mass: Mary teaches us to look out for each other

2013-09-23

More than 20,000 people gathered at the Shrine of Our Lady of Bonaria for Sunday Mass with Pope Francis. During the service, the Pope asked them to entrust themselves to her and let her guide them through life.   


POPE FRANCIS
"Mary teaches us to have that look that seeks to welcome, to guide, to protect. Let us learn to look at each other under the maternal gaze of Mary! There are people who we instinctively give less attention to, people who instead have most need of it: the most abandoned, the sick, those who have nothing to live on, those who do not know Jesus, young people who are in trouble, the young who can’t find work.” 

Speaking from the Shrine, and looking out into the crowd, as well as the Mediterranean Sea, Pope Francis also said that only by working together will society be able to provide the rights of the people. He added that these rights include the right to work, and the right to earn enough to provide for the family. 

The visit to the Shrine of Our Lady of Bonaria had a special significance for Pope Francis. A few weeks into his pontificate, he had announced his desire to visit the Shrine, one of several examples of his devotion to the Virgin Mary. Significantly, Our Lady of Bonaria is also the namesake for Pope Francis' hometown of Buenos Aires.
