Following the Angelus on Sunday, Pope Francis notes the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and prays for all people who are suffering due to war.

Pope Francis on Sunday marked the 75th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. “It is like a master plan,” he said. “Many steps have been taken, many still need to be made, and, unfortunately, at times, steps backward have been taken.”

“The commitment to human rights is never finished!” he said, adding that he is close to all those who work and fight to defend human rights in the concrete situations of everyday life.
