2014-11-03

The Pope prayed the Angelus in St. Peter's Square with thousands of pilgrims. Commemorating the Solemnity of All Souls, Pope Francis reminded Christians that death is not the end.

POPE FRANCIS
"Remembering the dead, caring for their graves and prayers of suffrage, give us firm hope, rooted in the certainty that death is not the last word on human fate, death is not the last word, because mankind is destined to a life without limits, which has its roots and its fulfillment in God.”

He asked the pilgrims to not only pray for their deceased loved ones, but also for those who were forgotten.

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.
