16 December 2018 | Angelus


Saint Peter's Square

After the Angelus, the Holy Father continued:
Dear brothers and sisters, last week in Marrakech, Morocco, the Global Compact for
Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, which aims to be a reference framework for the
entire international community, was approved. I thus hope that thanks to this
instrument too, [the international community] will be able to work with responsibility,
solidarity and compassion toward those who, for various reasons, have left their own
country, and I entrust this intention to your prayers.
