Pope’s quotes: Free the oppressed

 |  The Francis Chronicles

A quote from Pope Francis:

“The action of peace and the work of humanitarian aid carried out by Catholic charitable entities in this context constitute a faithful expression of God’s love for his children, who find themselves in conditions of oppression and anguish. God hears their cry, He knows their suffering, and He wishes to free them; and you lend your hands and your abilities to Him.”

-- Message to Catholic charitable associations who work in the crisis of Syria, May 31, 2014
