Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, has offered prayers to the newly elected president of the United States of America.
This morning, the Italian prelate commented on the US elections which took place yesterday, in which Republican candidate Donald Trump was elected president, saying, “We give our best wishes to the new president, so that his government can be really fruitful.”
“We assure him of our prayers, so that the Lord may enlighten him and support him in the service of his country, and of course, also in serving the well-being and peace of the world.”
“I think that today,” Cardinal Parolin also underscored, “there is a need for everyone to work to change the world’s situation, that is one of severe laceration, and of serious conflict.”
