Pope’s quotes: Pray for peace

 |  The Francis Chronicles

A quote from Pope Francis:

“With this pilgrimage, I wished to be the bearer of a word of hope, but I also received this in return! I received it from the brothers and sisters who hope ‘against all hope,’ amid the suffering of those who have fled their own countries on account of conflicts; of those who, throughout the world, are derided and discriminated against for their faith in Christ. Let us stay close to them! Let us pray for them, and for peace in the Holy Land and in the Middle East. May the prayer of all the Church also support the path to full unity between Christians, so that the world may believe in God’s love that in Jesus Christ came to live among us.”

-- General audience after pilgrimage to the Holy Land, St. Peter’s Square, May 28, 2014
