"Let us think about our brothers who were slaughtered on the shores of Libya; let us think about that young boy burned alive by his companions because he was Christian; let us think about those migrants on the high seas who are thrown into the sea by others, because they are Christians; let us think about […] those Ethiopians, murdered because they were Christians…and so many others," the Pope lamented.

"And many others that we do not know about, who suffer in prisons, because they are Christians. Today, the Church is a Church of Martyrs: they suffer, they give their lives and we receive a blessing from God for their witness."

Concluding his homily, the Pope also prayed for the many "hidden martyrs" who suffer daily for the faith.

You're going to want to find the video, great speech:

"They never made it big. But they were successful. Two immigrants with little money or education found stable jobs, owned a home, retired with security and gave all four of their children a life far better than their own. My parents achieved what came to be known as the American Dream. But now, too many Americans are starting to doubt whether achieving that dream is still possible"
...
"If we remember that family – not government – is the most important institution in society, that all life deserves protection, and that all parents deserve to choose the education that’s right for their children, then we will have a strong people and a strong nation."
...
"I recognize the challenges of this campaign, and the demands of the office I seek. But in this endeavor as in all things, I find comfort in the ancient command to, 'Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.'"
...
"Because while our people and economy are pushing the boundaries of the 21st century, too many of our leaders and their ideas are stuck in the twentieth century."
...
"They look for solutions in yesterday, so they don’t see that good-paying modern jobs require different skills and more education than the past. They blindly support an outdated higher education system that is too expensive and inaccessible to those who need it most.

And they have forgotten that when America fails to lead, global chaos inevitably follows, so they appease our enemies, betray our allies and weaken our military.

At the turn of the 19th century, a generation of Americans harnessed the power of the Industrial Age and transformed this country into the leading economy in the world. And the 20th century became the American Century.

Now, the time has come for our generation to lead the way toward a new American Century."
...
"This election is not just about what laws we will pass. It is a generational choice about what kind of country we will be."
...
"The final verdict on our generation will be written by Americans not yet born. Let us make sure they record that we made the right choice. That in the early years of this century, faced with a rapidly changing and uncertain world, our generation rose to face the great challenges of our time.

And because we did, there was still one place in the world where who you come from does not determine how far you can go.

Because we did, the American miracle lived on. And because we did, our children and theirs lived in a new American Century."

MATT LEE, ASSOCIATED PRESS: Okay. And then this has been raised before by other people, but I'll ask it again now in this same context: When the Supreme Leader of Iran is continuing - in the middle of these negotiations is continuing to make statements like "death to America," how is that not problematic for you? How is that not something - why are you just willing to let that - let it slide, basically, and you are holding the prime minister of I...
