Pope Francis on December 14, 2017, prayed for peace and for populations suffering in on-going conflicts. His remarks came after praying the midday Angelus with those gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

“In our prayerful awaiting of the birth of Jesus, the Prince of Peace, we invoke the gift of peace for the whole world, especially for the populations that suffer most because of on-going conflicts,” the Holy Father said. “I renew, in particular, my appeal so that, on the occasion of holy Christmas, kidnapped persons – priests, men and women religious and lay faithful – are released and are able to return to their homes. Let us pray for them.”
