Pope Francis greets women on International Women's Day
Following the Angelus on Sunday at Vatican, Pope Francis had a special greeting for “all the women throughout the world who are seeking, every day, to build a more human and welcoming society.” On March 08, 2015, celebrated around the world as International Women’s Day, is an occasion, the prelate said, “to repeat the importance of women, and the necessity of their presence in life.”
He continued with a fraternal ‘thank you’ for all those women who, in a thousand ways, bear witness to the Gospel and work in the Church. He also said, “A world where women are marginalized is a sterile world, because women don’t just bear life but transmit to us the ability to see otherwise, they see things differently. They transmit to us the ability to understand the world with different eyes, to understand things with hearts that are more creative, more patient, more tender.” The Pope then offered “a prayer, and a special blessing, for all the women present here in the Square, and for all women.”
