Pope highlights childrens’ rights at General Audience

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Wednesday during his General Audience highlighted that on November 20th the International Day of Rights will be observed.

The Pope appealed to the conscience of all, institutions and families, to ensure  that children are always protected and their welfare is secure, so that they never fall into “forms of slavery, recruitment into armed groups and mistreatment.”

The Holy Father expressed the hope that the international community would be vigilant about their lives, to ensure that every child has the right to school education, so that their growth is serene and they can look confidently to the future.
