Uprooting from the World

Light of truth

“The reality is the cross. It is the sin of the world that he came to take upon Himself, and to uproot from the world of men and women. It is the innocent who suffer and die as victims of war and terrorism; the forms of enslavement that continue to violate human dignity even in the age of human rights; the refugee camps which at times seem more like a hell than a purgatory; the systematic discarding of all that is no longer useful, people included.”

Pope Francis delivered an allocution on June 28, 2017 at the Ordinary Public   Consistory for the Creation of New Cardinals in St Peter’s Basilica in Rome.
