VATICAN - Pope to the blind and deaf: Jesus encounters people marked by disease to make them witnesses [AN]

In an audience with six thousand people from the Apostolic Movement for the Blind and Little Mission of the Deaf-mute, Pope Francis speaks of the “culture of encounter” and that of “exclusion”, remembering a man born blind . “Only those who recognize their fragility, their limits can build fraternal relations and solidarity, in the Church and in society”. A greeting for those present while the crowd shake their hands in a gesture of applause.
