“I continue to invoke from the Lord peace for the dear Ukrainian land,” assured Pope Francis at the General Audience of May 24, 2017.
In the course of the weekly meeting, after the greetings in several languages, the Pontiff addressed the participants in the International Military Pilgrimage to Lourdes (May 19-21), who were present in uniform in St. Peter’s Square.
“Ukrainian pilgrims, Christ is Risen!” the Pope said to them in Ukrainian, unleashing applause. After his appeal for peace, the Pope’s words were translated by a collaborator.
