A photo exhibition titled “Women’s Cry” will be on display during the month of May in St. Peter’s Square. It seeks to give a voice to the suffering and injustices endured by women around the world.
On several occasions Pope Francis has recalled the intention of the artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini when he made the great “colonnade” that frames St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican: to represent the maternal embrace of the Church that welcomes the faithful and also nonbelievers.
The left side of this “embrace” is the area chosen for the Women’s Cry exhibition, promoted by the Holy See’s Dicastery for Communication together with the World Union of Catholic Women’s Organizations (WUCWO) and the Handshake agency.
