Pope Francis Calls on the World ‘To Protect the Vulnerable’

‘I would like all men and women of good will in this great nation to support the efforts of the international community to protect the vulnerable in our world’

“We know by faith that ‘The Creator does not abandon us. He never forsakes his loving plan or repents of having created us. Humanity has the ability to work together in building our common home’. As Christians inspired by this certainty, we wish to commit ourselves to the conscious and responsible care of our common home. Mr. President, the efforts which were recently made to mend broken relationships and to open new doors to cooperation within our human family represent positive steps along the path of reconciliation, justice and freedom. I would like all men and women of good will in this great nation to support the efforts of the international community to protect the vulnerable in our world and to stimulate integral and inclusive models of development, so — so that our brothers and sisters everywhere may know the blessings of peace and prosperity which God wills for all his children.”
