2014-01-20

After the Angelus prayer, to mark the World Day of Migrants and Refugees, Pope Francis thanked the people that take care of immigrants, and  condemned human trafficking.

POPE FRANCIS
"I would like to thank those who work with migrants, who welcome them and accompany them in their difficult moments, to defend them against those whom Blessed Giovanni Battista Scalabrini called "the merchants in human flesh,” who want to enslave the migrants. ”

Despite the bad weather, thousands of pilgrims gathered at St. Peter's Square to listen to his words. The Pope explained what it means to be a disciple of Jesus nowadays.

POPE FRANCIS
"It means putting innocence in the place of malice, love in the place of force, humility in the place of pride, service in the place of prestige.”

At the end of his remarks, Pope Francis asked pilgrims for prayers to heal the suffering and pain of the people forced to leave their homes due to serious situations.
