Pope Francis spoke of the need to protect children from abuse during his midday audience on Sunday, May 5.
Noting that Italy was observing is National Day of Children Victims of Violence, the Pope said that he keeps the victims of abuse in his prayers. He added: “I also want to forcefully state that we must all commit ourselves with clarity and courage so that every human person, especially children who are among the most vulnerable, be always defended and protected.”
