Power of Silence. Power of Presence.
In silent prayer the Holy Father delivered a powerful message of hope to parents of aborted babies:
“The Pope will keep present the spirit that is here in the Garden of Angels . He will be here for this reason: to stress the importance of life because our life goes beyond death”, explained cemetery custodian, Monsignor Claudio Palma,
The ‘Garden of Angels’ is a 700 square yards portion of Rome’s Laurentino Cemetery reserved for aborted babies. Every year on All Souls Day Pope Francis visits one of Rome’s cemeteries to celebrate Mass and offer his All Souls Day homily. This is the first time Laurentino had been visited by a Pontiff.
