Pope Francis has embraced Mexico’s poor indigenous south, denouncing what he described as the people’s “systemic” exclusion from society.

Many women wore traditional clothing and parts of the Mass in the city of San Cristobal de las Casas were said in native languages. “Today’s world, ravaged as it is by a throwaway culture, needs you!” he said as he celebrated a Mass that included bible readings in native tongues, referring to the mostly indigenous throngs who loudly cheered him.

“You have much to teach us,” he said, lauding Mexico’s native peoples while denouncing “the systemic and organized way your people have been misunderstood and excluded from society.”

He said the Mass before a Hollywood-style stage set replica of the facade of the colonial-era city’s main cathedral.
