POPE FRANCIS
"We remember the victims of war and violence; the many "little ones" of the world crushed by hunger and poverty. We remember the anonymous who rest in common graves. We remember our brothers and sisters killed because they are Christians.”

The Pope added that Jesus describe death as "a sleep from which He awakens us.” Before concluding his address, Pope Francis recited a special prayer for all the deceased.
