But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Immediately after that, at noon, the pope will lead the Angelus prayer with thousands of faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square.
