Pope Francis Is Silent On The Disappearance Of Emanuela Orlandi Did Not Utter One Word About Her In His Sundays Angelus Address: The Love Of God Is Without Measure

Why Was Pope Francis A No Show 
On 30th Year Anniversary Of The Disappearance Of Emanuela Orlandi??
22 June 2013

Where was the Pope on the night when a torch-light procession was held in memory of Emanuela Orlandi. The Pope's no show at the concert held in his honor was many asking why he didn't show up. It was strange for him not to show.

Some said that Pope Francis retorted when asked about his no show:  
"I am not a Renaissance Prince who listens to music instead of working." 
Well one year later on the 31st anniversary the family and friends of the missing girl paid a visit to St Peter's Square to hear Pope Francis' Sunday Angelus Address. Pope said nothing to family nor did he pray for the missing girl or even mention her disappearance 31 years ago to the day.

22 June 2014 
St Peter's Square 
Pope's Angelus Address

Here is the complete text of Pope Francis' Sunday Angelus Address as reported by Vatican Information Service:
Vatican City, 23 June 2014 (VIS) – At midday Pope Francis appeared at the window of his study to pray the traditional Sunday Angelus with the faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square. The Holy Father commented that today Italy and many other countries celebrate the feast day of the Body and Blood of Christ, “Corpus Domini” or “Corpus Christi”, in which the ecclesial community gathers around the Eucharist to adore the most precious gift that Jesus left to her. 
In the Gospel of St. John we find the narrative on the “bread of life”, spoken by Jesus in the synagogue of Capernaum, in which He states: “I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world”. Pope Francis explained, “Jesus says that he has not come into this world to give something, but to give himself, his life, as nourishment for those who have faith in him. Our communion with the Lord commits us, his disciples, to imitate him, making of our lives, with our attitudes, a bread broken for others, just as the Master broke the bread that is truly His flesh”. 
“Whenever we participate in Holy Mass and are nourished by the body of Christ, the presence of Jesus and the Holy Spirit works within us; it shapes our hearts, it communicates inner attitudes that transform within us into modes of behaviour in accordance with the Gospel. Firstly, docility to the Word of God, then fraternity among Christians, the courage of Christian witness, the creativity of charity, the ability to give hope to the disheartened, and to welcome the excluded. In this way the Eucharist helps the Christian lifestyle to mature in us. Christ's charity, received with an open heart … changes us, transforms us, makes us capable of loving not according to a human measure, which is always limited, but according to God's measure, and God's measure is without measure”. 
“And then we become able to love even those who do not love us”, continued the Pontiff, “and it is not easy. If we know that a person does not love us we tend not to like that person. But no! We must love those who do not love us! We must oppose evil with good, we must forgive, share, welcome others. Thanks to Jesus and his Spirit, even our life becomes 'bread broken' for our brothers. And, living in this way, we discover true joy! The joy of making oneself a gift, to reciprocate the great gift that we have first received, without any merit on our part. 
Francis concluded his brief reflection by urging the faithful to recall two things: first, that “the measure of God's love is to love without measure”, and that our life, “with Jesus' love, receiving the Eucharist, transforms our life into a gift”
The bother of the missing girl had this to say about the Popes silence:
"Emanuela is worth a prayer the Pope's silence was very dissapointing. I think Emanuela deserved a prayer, in memory of her 31 years to the day after her death. Not asking for much, very little would have sufficed. " Pietro Orlandi, Emanuela's brother. 
Why did Pope Francis hide from public view on the 30th anniversary of the disappearance? And why did Pope Francis ignore the family and friends on the 31st anniversary this year? Does Francis know something about the events that took place on 22 June 1983? Does Pope Francis know something about the girl and what happened to her?

Is Pope Francis hiding something?

Will this missing girl be his downfall?
What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother' s blood crieth to me from the earth.
For there is not any thing secret that shall not be made manifest, nor hidden, that shall not be known and come abroad.
