During his Sunday Angelus, Pope Francis reflected on the miraculous catch of fish from the Gospel. He said that like St. Peter one's needs to be open and generous toward God.  

POPE FRANCIS
“Jesus asks us to welcome Him into the boat of our life, to begin again with Him and set out on a new sea, that turns out to be full of surprises.”

He added that during times when one is hesitant, like St. Peter was, Jesus provides encouragement; and if people trust in Him, God will free them from their sins. 

After the Angelus prayer, the pope once again stressed his call upon governments and all people to help stop Human Trafficking. 

POPE FRANCIS
“We all can and must work together to denounce the cases of exploitation and slavery of men, women, and children.”

He invited all pilgrims in St. Peter's Square to join him in prayer for St. Josephine Bakhita intercession, whose feast day was celebrated on Feb. 8. 

Bakhita during her life had suffered from slavery and it is on her feast day that the World Day of Prayer and Awareness against Human Trafficking also takes place.
