Pope Francis notes their September 11 celebration of New Year and prays for fraternity.
As the civil war in Ethiopia continues to shatter the country, Pope Francis again made a call for peace.
“New Year’s Day will be celebrated in Ethiopia this coming September 11,” he noted at the end of the September 8 general audience.
I extend to the Ethiopian people my most cordial and heart-felt greetings, particularly to those who are suffering due to the ongoing conflict and the serious humanitarian situation it has caused. May this be a moment of fraternity and solidarity so that the common desire for peace can be heard.
