Indigenous Peoples' Day 2017

“I say this to you with regret: Many grave sins
were committed against the native people of
America in the name of God.”

“I humbly ask forgiveness, not only for the offense
of the church herself, but also for crimes committed
against the native peoples during the so-called
conquest of America.”

~ Pope Francis, Indigenous Peoples’ Day, July 9, 2015
