Pope Francis insists on not forgetting the war in Ukraine, despite its extension

The Pope Francisco today asked societies not to forget the war in Ukraine despite the fact that the conflict is prolonged, and urged to fight for peace.

“I always keep alive in my heart the thought for the Ukrainian population affected by the war. May the time that passes not cool our pain and concern for the martyred people,” Francis said this Sunday after the Angelus prayer.

“Please, let’s not get used to this tragic reality, let’s always keep it in our hearts. Let us fight and pray for peace,” she concluded.

Pope Francis has condemned the violence on numerous occasions and has called for peace for countries like Ukraine, as far as he said he was willing to go after the invitation of the Ukrainian president, Volodímir Zelenski, although he later confessed in an interview with the Argentine newspaper The nation that he would not travel because, he asked himself, “what would be the use if the next day the war would continue?”.

Jorge Bergoglio also told the Italian newspaper Corriere della Seraquoted by Ephwho had requested to travel to Moscow to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin to ask him to stop the war in Ukraine.

After Mass this Sunday, Francis also addressed the people and authorities of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan to express his regret for having postponed his trip to these countries, scheduled for the first days of July.

“Dear brothers, with great regret, due to problems with my leg, I have had to postpone my visit to your countries, scheduled for the first days of July. I really feel a great regret for having to postpone this trip, which I wanted so much. I apologize for this. Let us pray together so that, with God’s help and medical care, he can be among you as soon as possible. Let us have hope!” he was quoted as saying by Vatican News.
