Pope Francis Lampedusa July 2013

Pope Francis Lampedusa July 2013

Pope Francis (C) greets migrants during his visit to the island of Lampedusa, a key destination of tens of thousands of would-be immigrants from Africa, during his visit on July 8, 2013. In a visit stripped of the usual pomp of papal travel, Francis will cast a wreath into the sea and hold a mass of mourning with a simple cross made from the wood of rickety fishing boats that migrants arrive on.
