(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis at the Angelus took note of the observance of Sea Sunday, which takes place each year on the second Sunday of July. On Sea Sunday, the Catholic Church, along with other churches and ecclesial communities, remembers seafarers and prays for them, their families and those who support them.

In his remarks, the Holy Father said, “I encourage seafarers and fishermen in their work, which is often difficult and risky, as well as the chaplains and the volunteers in their precious service. May Mary, Star of the Sea, watch over you!”
