· The Pope's invitation at the Angelus ·
“Water is the most essential element for life, the future of humanity depends on our capacity to guard and share it”. Pope Francis said this at the Angelus on Sunday, 22 March, World Water Day, a celebration organized by the United Nations. The Pontiff encouraged “the international community to ensure that the planet's waters may be adequately protected and that no one be excluded or discriminated against in the use of this good par excellence”. On this subject, the Holy Father cited St Francis of Assisi's words on water in the Canticle of the Sun. At the end of his address, he announced that 50,000 copies of a pocket-size Gospel were being distributed in St Peter's Square; a similiar gesture took place last year also during Lent.
