Speaking after the Angelus prayer on Sunday, the Pope looked ahead to the annual observance of World Water Day marked each year on 22 March and said: ¨Tomorrow is World Water Day, which invites us to reflect on the value of this wonderful and irreplaceable gift of God.¨ For us believers ‘sister’ water is not a commodity: it is a universal symbol and a source of life and health,’ he said, exclaiming ‘too many of our brothers and sisters around the world have to little access to to water, which is perhaps even polluted’. ¨It is necessary to ensure drinking water and sanitation for all, while he thanked and encouraged those, who through their different professional capacities and responsibilities, work for this very important purpose.
