Vatican spokesman: editorial on human trafficking
May 14, 2012
In the wake of a conference organized by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, the director of the Holy See Press Office has devoted his weekly editorial to human trafficking.
“The contribution of believers lies in the ability to help rediscover the personal relationships that recognize and restore the presence and dignity of the soul in violated bodies,” says Father Federico Lombardi. “It is a contribution that even police forces acknowledge as an absolute need, so that their fight can finally achieve its goal of the freedom and rebirth of the victims into new life.”
“Nuns are necessarily in the front line in this charitable work, because they are women and are freer to take on the very high risks of this service,” he added. “The Church has to offer its experience in humanity and spiritual healing, as well as its international presence, in order to collaborate with those fighting the most difficult battles against evil in the world.”
