Pope 'thinking of those who killed selves after losing work'

Govts shd give all chance to earn bread Francis tells audience

(ANSA) - ROME, JAN 12 - Pope Francis told his weekly general audience in the Vatican Wednesday that he was thinking of people who had taken their own lives after losing their jobs.
    "In these times of pandemic many people have lost work, we know, and some of them, crushed by an unbearable weight, have reached the point of taking their own lives.
    "I should like to remember each one of them and their families today".
    Francis urged the faithful to observe "a moment of silence remembering those men and women who were desperate because they couldn't find work".
    The pontiff added: "Governments should give everyone a chance to earn their daily bread". (ANSA).
