Pope prays for an end to violence in the Holy Land and Burkina Faso


In renewed appeals following his Sunday Angelus, Pope Francis calls for prayers and for peace for the countless victims of violence in the Holy Land and Burkina Faso.

Addressing the faithful gathered in St Peter’s Square for the Sunday Angelus, after the recitation of the Marian prayer, Pope Francis turned his thoughts to the terrible news that continues to come from the Holy Land.

In light of recent tragedies, Pope Francis noted that many people, including children, are being killed and he asked, “How can we put an end to this spiral of violence?”

The Holy Father then renewed, once more, his appeal that “dialogue may reign over hatred and revenge”.

“I pray to God for the Palestinians and the Israelis, that they may find the road to fraternity and peace, with the help of the international community”.
