  • Guess who's coming to lunch? Pope hosts meal for 1500 needy people

Earlier, at a Mass for Rome's needy in St. Peter's Square, Francis said those better off should not feel "annoyed" by the poor but help them as much as possible.

Pope Francis on Sunday decried that the "greed of a few" wealthy people is compounding the plight of the poor and lamented the lack of concern about growing income gaps between the haves and have-nots.

Francis will probably repeat his enchantment for a complete ban on the bomb when he visits Nagasaki and Hiroshima, meets with survivors of the 1945 bombings there in addition to victims of the March 11, 2011 Fukushima nuclear plant catastrophe in northern Japan. A year ago more than 3,500 people attended. In response, Japanese bishops in 2016 called for the abolition of nuclear power to protect "our common home".

Catholics make up just.59 percent of Thailand's population of 65 million, most of whom are Buddhist. During the service, Pope Francis said the poor "facilitate our access to heaven" and described them as "the treasure of the Church".

Francis has made the fight against human trafficking a cornerstone of his papacy, a message that is likely to resonate in Thailand, which the United Nations considers a key trafficking destination as well as a source of forced labor and sex slaves.

In Japan, hopes are excessive amongst Catholics that Francis will ship a message opposing the dying penalty, and maybe meet with a former boxer and human rights activist held for nearly 5 a long time on dying row. The mass was attended by the poor and the volunteers who later lunched with the pope.

Tomoki Yanagawa, who works at the Jesuit Social Center in Tokyo, said a papal statement about the death penalty would help raise awareness in Japan.

"I hope he will speak about the preciousness of life and clearly denounce what trivializes life", stated Yanagawa.

Pope Francis established World Day of the Poor in his Apostolic Letter in 2017 to celebrate the end of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. He has additionally denounced right now's "throwaway culture" the place euthanasia, abortion and suicide are sometimes thought-about acceptable - a message that would resonate in Japan, which has one of many highest suicide charges within the developed world.

The agreement has been hailed as a milestone by the Vatican, but critics point to continued persecution of underground prelates, including a report last week by AsiaNews that the underground bishop of Mindong was being hounded by Chinese security agents. Monsignor Vincenzo Guo Xijn had stepped apart to permit an official bishop be named as a part of the 2018 Vatican cope with China.
