CWN Editor's Note: As he flew over the Sahara desert on his January 31 trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo, Pope Francis asked journalists to join him in prayer for the migrants who brave the desert.

The Pontiff said:

Let us spare a little thought, in silence, a prayer for all the people who in search of a little comfort, a little freedom, have crossed it and have not made it. So many suffering people who arrive at the Mediterranean and after crossing the desert are caught in the lagers and suffer there. Let us pray for all those people.
