“Give witness to your faith,” said Pope Francis, encouraging the Latin American community in Rome, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the foundation of the Association, on Sunday, January 14, 2018, after the Angelus in St. Peter’s Square.

“I greet the Latin American community of Saint Lucia of Rome, which is celebrating 25 years of its foundation,” said the Pope in Italian.

On this World Day of Migrants and Refugees, the Pontiff added in Spanish: “On this happy anniversary, I pray to the Lord to fill you with His blessings so that you can continue to give witness of your faith amid the difficulties, the joys, the sacrifices and the hopes of your migratory experience. Thank you.”
