‘I am always close to you, in prayer and action,’ Pope says following migrants’ deaths
November 30, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: At the conclusion of his November 28 Angelus address, Pope Francis expressed his deep sorrow at the death of migrants in recent days.
“I think of those who died crossing the English Channel, those on the borders of Belarus, many of whom are children, and those who drown in the Mediterranean,” he said. “There is so much sorrow when thinking about them. Of those who are repatriated to North Africa, they are captured by traffickers who turn them into slaves: they sell the women and torture the men.”
“I assure my prayers to the migrants who find themselves in these crisis situations,” he added. “Know also that from my heart I am always close to you, in prayer and action.”
