LIVE: The Pope presides over the Prayer Vigil to "Dry the Tears"


(ONLY VIDEO) In the "Vigil to wipe the tears," the Pope hears the testimonies of people who have lived in painful firsthand experiences; from losing a job or a child in a car accident, to having relatives murdered in the Rwanda genocide.

It starts at 6 p.m. Rome time. This organized event is a staple of the Jubilee since one of the works of mercy is to comfort those who suffer.
