“Today we are living through a world war, please let us stop it,” Francis said.

At the end of the general audience on Wednesday, 7 September 2022, the Holy Father again referred to the conflict in Ukraine and flags with the country’s yellow and blue flags were seen in the crowd.

“And I don’t forget the tormented Ukraine. There are flags there. In the face of all the war scenarios of our time, I ask each person to be a builder of peace and to pray that thoughts and projects of concord and reconciliation spread throughout the world. Today we are experiencing a world war, let us please stop!”.

To the Virgin Mary we entrust the victims of every war, in a special way the dear people of Ukraine.
