7 July 2019 | Angelus


Saint Peter Square

After the Angelus the Holy Father continued:
Dear brothers and sisters, even though several days have passed, I invite you to pray
for the poor, defenceless people who were killed or wounded in the air attack that
struck a migrant detention centre in Libya. The international community cannot
tolerate such grave acts. I pray for the victims: that the God of peace welcome the
deceased unto himself and support the wounded. I hope that humanitarian corridors
may be organized in an extensive and concerted fashion for the neediest migrants. I
also remember all the victims of the massacres that were recently carried out in
Afghanistan, Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger. Let us pray together. [moment of silence]
