Pope’s Telegram for Death of King of Thailand

‘I pray that, as a fitting tribute to the late King’s legacy of wisdom, strength and fidelity, all Thais may work together to further the path of peace, and I willingly invoke upon all who mourn his passing the consolation of divine blessings.’

Below is a ZENIT translation of the telegram of condolences Pope Francis sent upon learning of the death of the King of Thailand, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej:
**

His Excellency Prayut Chan-o-cha
Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Thailand

I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, and I extend my heartfelt condolences to the Members of the Royal Family and to all the people of the Kingdom at this sorrowful time. I pray that, as a fitting tribute to the late King’s legacy of wisdom, strength and fidelity, all Thais may work together to further the path of peace, and I willingly invoke upon all who mourn his passing the consolation of divine blessings.

Franciscus PP.
