Pope Francis: renew commitment to pray for Ukraine and peoples exhausted by wars

At the conclusion of Sunday’s Mass in Trieste, Pope Francis asked everyone to renew their commitment to pray and work for world peace.

The Pope’s words came just before leading the recitation of the Angelus prayer during his Sunday visit to the northeastern Italian city.

“From this city, let us renew our commitment to pray and work for peace: for martyred Ukraine, for Palestine and Israel, for Sudan, Myanmar and every people that suffers because of war. And let us invoke the Virgin Mary, venerated on Monte Grisa as Mother and Queen.”

Pope Francis also thanked his hosts and all those gathered for the Sunday celebrations for their warm welcome, beautiful events, and prayerful accompaniment.
