World Children's Day

Priests for Life was part of the Vatican’s first ever World Children’s Day which took place in Rome and attended by over 50,000 children (born and unborn) and adults from around the world. This was a two-day event which began at the Olympic Stadium and concluded in St. Peter’s Square with the Holy Father participating in both events. Stadium highlights included a Children’s Village and a friendly football match with professional players, children singing, wearing various native costumes from around the world and of course a visit from Pope Francis who interacted with the children and spoke of the importance of building a future based on peace, hope, and dialogue. At St. Peter’s, Mass was celebrated, followed by and address from Italian actor and comedian Roberto Benigni, who won 3 Oscars for his work on the film Life is Beautiful. World Children’s Day was a huge success and will be repeated in the coming years.
