Pope on crisis: "Decent Work for All"



After the Angelus, the Pope prayed this morning for three particular intentions. He entrusted the World Day of Leprosy Suffers, all the people who are still suffering from this disease, as well as health workers and volunteers who devote themselves because there might be a world without leprosy " to the protection of Father Damien de Veuster, who was canonized last October. Remembering the second day of intercession for peace in the Holy Land, Pope Benedict XVI said he was spiritually united in prayer to the many Christians from all over the world. And finally he echoed the call of the Italian Bishops Conference, which encourages people to do everything possible to protect and create jobs.
