Pope Francis visits the forgotten in Lampedusa Island

by pio dal cin Codognè  Pope Francis is celebrating the Holy Mass, as I write, in an Altar made with a boat used by some of the thousands immigrants that every year try to make it to the European Southernmost point of Lampedusa, an Island that is geographically in Italy but it is closer to African coasts thatn Berlin or Bruxelles. Not only geographically but also politically, since the European Union has done absolutely nothing to help this tiny Island of 5000 people to hel them with the immense flux of people that try to make it here and have perished in the efford by the thousands (20.000 is timid estimate so far)
