For children who suffer – The Pope Video
There are still millions of boys and girls who suffer and live in conditions very similar to slavery.
They aren’t numbers: they are human beings with names, with a face of their own, with an identity that God has given them.

Each marginalized child, abandoned by his or her family, without schooling, without healthcare, is a cry! A cry that rises up to God and shames the system that we adults have built.

Let us pray for a more widespread culture of non-violence, that will progress when countries and citizens alike resort less and less to the use of arms.
Those four words, as seemingly simple themes, could be used to describe the papacy of Pope Francis that started 10 years ago today. Though the world has changed much in the last decade, Pope Francis has consistently asked for people of good will...
