Pope Francis calls for prayers amid conflicts

Pope Francis, addressing the Wednesday General Audience in St. Peter’s Square, urged Christians to pray for victims of war in Ukraine, the Holy Land, and other areas. 

Despite suffering from a cold, the Pope personally reiterated his concern for peace and the need for divine intervention.

“Once again, brothers and sisters, I renew my invitation to pray for people who suffer the horror of war in Ukraine and the Holy Land, as well as in other parts of the world,” said the Pope. 

His message, primarily delivered by Fr. Pierluigi Giroli due to his health, was clear in its call for global solidarity and prayer for those affected by conflict.

Highlighting the severe situations in Ukraine and Gaza, the Pope pointed out the recent drone attacks by Russian forces in Ukrainian cities and the rising death toll in Gaza due to the Israeli military’s ground offensive. 

The pontiff’s appeal extended beyond immediate peace. He encouraged Christians to continue their Lenten journey toward Easter with purpose and devotion. 

“In these days of Lent, continue courageously in your efforts to free yourselves from everything that masks your lives, so as to return with your whole heart to God, who loves us with an eternal love,” he said.
