Vatican City, Feb 19, 2022 / 07:30 am
Pope Francis met Saturday with a Christian movement of blind and visually impaired people, who are on a pilgrimage in Rome.
“Your pilgrimage is a sign of the full participation of the faithful with disabilities in the communion of the Church,” Pope Francis told the group in their meeting on Feb. 19.
The French association, Voir Ensemble (See Together), was founded in 1927 by Father Yves Mollat, a blind Jesuit priest.
Today the movement has grown to have 3,000 members across France and advocates for the inclusion of those with visual disabilities in society.
