The city, Gabii, was first occupied by small groups of settlers in […]

Pope leads prayers for victims of ‘perverse plague’ of trafficking

VATICAN CITY—Human trafficking is “brutal, savage and criminal,” Pope Francis said, but often it seems like people see it as a sad, but normal fact of life. “I want to call everyone to make a commitment to seeing that this perverse plague, a modern form of slavery, is effectively countered,” the pope said July 30, […]
