Pope makes an appeal for flood victims in Bangladesh, Nepal, India and for the Rohingya
During the Angelus, Pope Francis paused for a moment of silence on behalf of Myanmar’s often rejected Bengali minority. As he did with the apostles, Jesus "expects from his people a different and superior answer than those of public opinion." He also “wants to continue to build his Church” with “small stones”. Indeed, “no small stone is useless; on the contrary, in the hands of Jesus a small stone becomes precious”.

Pope: there are no unemployed in the Kingdom of God
During the Angelus, Pope Francis explained the parable of the day workers called up at different times but paid the same remuneration. "Jesus wants to open our hearts to the logic of the love of the Father, which is free and generous.” US missionary Stanley Francis Rother, killed in 1981 by death squads in Guatemala, is beatified.
Pope: freedom of expression is a fundamental right, but faiths have the right not to be ridiculed
During his meeting with journalists on the plane to the Philippines, Francis called "killing in the name of God" an "aberration". Speaking about a possible attack against him, he said he feared more for the safety of people who come to meet him than for himself; instead, he faces risk with "a good dose of unawareness." In June or July, he is expected to issue an encyclical on the environment. In the Philippines, "The crux of the message will be the poor," especially in support for the victims of typhoon Yolanda.

Francis’s visit and the mission entrusted to the Armenian people
The pope did not waver from calling evil by its name, recognising the right of the Armenian people to remember. However, remembrance can no longer be an end in itself; it must become the vocation of the Armenian people and Diaspora. Armenians must become ambassadors and a bridge between cultures they met after the genocide, working for peace and religious coexistence. A Diaspora Armenian writes.
