Vatican City, 13 December 2015 (VIS) – After today's Angelus prayer, Pope Francis spoke about the agreement adopted during the Climate Conference which recently ended in Paris. “Its implementation will require concerted commitment and generous dedication by all. In the hope that it will ensure special attention to the most vulnerable populations, we urge the international community to continue with care on the path it has taken, in an spirit of increasingly active solidarity”.
He remarked that next Tuesday, December 15, the Ministerial Conference of the World Trade Organisation will commence in Nairobi. Addressing the participating countries, he urged them to I take into account the needs of the poor and the most vulnerable in their decisions, as well as the “legitimate aspirations of the least developed countries and the common good of the entire human family”.
The Holy Father also commented that in all the cathedrals of the world, the Holy Doors are being opened so that the Jubilee of mercy may be fully experienced in the particular churches. “I hope that this moment encourages many to become instruments of God's tenderness. As an expression of the works of mercy, 'Doors of Mercy' are being opened in places of discomfort and alienation. I thus greet the inmates of prisons around the world”. Finally, he greeted all the pilgrims and faithful present.
