- “The climate crisis always generates more serious humanitarian crises and the poor are the most vulnerable regarding extreme weather events. A solidarity founded on justice, on peace and on the unity of the human family is needed. #WorldHumanitarianDay” @Pontifex 19 August 2021
- “Patience helps us to be merciful in the way we view ourselves, our communities and our world.” @Pontifex 21 August 2021
- “We should not pursue God in dreams and in images of grandeur and power, but He must be recognised in the humanity of Jesus and, as a consequence, in that of the brothers and sisters we meet on the path of life. #GospelOfTheDay (Jn 6:60–69) #Angelus” @Pontifex 22 August 2021
- “Let us work together to eradicate the appalling scourge of modern slavery that still shackles millions of people in inhumanity and humiliation. Every human being is the image of God, and is free and destined to exist in equality and fraternity.” @Pontifex 23 August 2021
- “It is in humility that we build the future of the world.” @Pontifex 24 August 2021
