Written by Victoria Johnston on 15th October 2019
Pope Francis has unveiled a life-size sculpture to mark World Day of Migrants and Refugees.
It’s called Angels Unawares, and it depicts a group of migrants of various cultures and different historical periods.
The Argentinian Pontiff says he wanted to reaffirm the necessity that no one remain excluded from society, whether he is a long-time resident citizen or one newly arrived.
He added that he wanted the artistic work placed in St. Peter’s Square to remind all of the evangelical challenge of hospitality.
