Vatican City, April 16: Pope Francis presided over a traditiol Easter vigil ceremony in St. Peter’s Basilica amid heavy security in the wake of a series of deadly terror attacks in Egypt and Europe. The pontiff, in his homily, on Saturday evening said that refugees and migrants, along with the poor and socially margilised, have their “human dignity crucified” in various ways each day, urging the Christian faithful to maintain their hope, as symbolized by Christ’s resurrection. Francis also said that “human injustices” such as slavery, people trafficking, corruption and bureaucracy inflict suffering and damage the dignity of many around the world. (IANS)
