Vatican Media Live and Pope Francis on Twitter

Below is Vatican Media live showing services broadcast as they happen and a live view of St Peters Square at other times. Just tap the triangle in the centre of the screen to start.

I thank all those who are committed to alleviating their suffering. Let us remember migrants, their suffering and #PrayTogether.

I feel sorrow thinking about those who died crossing the English Channel, those on the borders of Belarus, many of whom are children, those who drown in the Mediterranean, those who are repatriated to North Africa and forced into servitude.

Even during these days so many migrants are exposed to very serious dangers, and so many lose their lives at our borders!

In the #GospelOfTheDay, Jesus exhorts us to be vigilant: not to allow our hearts to become lazy. We cannot be "sleepy Christians" without spiritual fervor, withour intensity in prayer, without passion for the Gospel.

Our life becomes beautiful when we wait for a dear one or someone important. May this #Advent help us transform our hope into the certainty that He whom we await loves us and will never abandon us.
