Pope: My heart is always with Ukrainian people

Pope Francis laments the "hurricane of violence" but assures that God always listens to the cry of the poor.

Pope Francis made yet another appeal for peace in Ukraine, reminding the faithful to continue to be insistent in our prayer for peace.

After the general audience of October 12, he said this:

In these days my heart is always with the Ukrainian people, especially the inhabitants of those places where the bombardments have been raging. I carry within me their pain and, by the intercession of the Holy Mother of God, I present it in prayer to the Lord. He always listens to the cry of the poor who invoke him: May his Spirit transform the hearts of those who hold the outcome of the war in their hands, so that the hurricane of violence may cease, and peaceful coexistence, in justice, may be rebuilt.
