Protect the Dignity of Minors

Light of truth

“Jesus’ harshest words are reserved for those who give scandal to the little ones: “It were better for them to have a great millstone fastened around their neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea” (Mt 18:6). It follows that we must work to protect the dignity of minors, gently yet firmly, opposing with all our might the throwaway culture nowadays that is every where apparent, to the detriment especially of the weak and the most vulnerable, such as minors.”

Pope Francis addressed the participants in the World Congress on Child Dignity in the Digital World, Hosted by the Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome, on October 6, 2017
