Following yesterday's Angelus prayer, Pope Francis called for prayers for the passengers and crew of the missing Malaysian airliner, Flight 370, and for their families and loved ones.

The Boeing 777 went missing on March 8 with 227 passengers and 12 crew and has not been seen since.

Pope Francis also addressed the members of the Pope John XXIII Community, founded by the Italian priest Oreste Benzi, and mentioned the Via Crucis organised by this community for women who are victims of trafficking, to take place on Friday evening in the streets of the centre of Rome.
