"Let us ask God in prayer for consolation for this tormented population."
“For a year now, we have been watching the violence in Myanmar with sorrow,” Pope Francis said at the end of the February 2 general audience, as that country marks a year since the military coup.
The Pope continued:
I echo the appeal of the Burmese bishops for the international community to work for reconciliation between the parties concerned. We cannot look away from the suffering of so many brothers and sisters.
Let us ask God in prayer for consolation for this tormented population. To him we entrust our efforts for peace.
