Pope: Let Memory of the Moon Landing Inspire Efforts to Build a More Just World

via Vatican News:

“Fifty years ago, yesterday”, Pope Francis said on Sunday, “Man set foot on the moon, achieving an extraordinary dream.”

Addressing the crowd gathered in St Peter’s Square for the Angelus prayer, the Pope expressed his hope that the memory of “that great step for humanity” might spark the desire to reach even “greater goals”.

Those he named were “more dignity for the weak, more justice among peoples, and more future for our common home.”
