Pope prays for end of Kiev violence

admin | 27 January 2014

Pope Francis prayed Sunday for an end to violence in Kiev, calling for dialogue between the Ukraine government and opposition amid fears fierce protests could develop into a wider civil conflict.

“I hope for constructive dialogue between the institutions and civil society, and that – without recourse to violent action – the spirit of peace and the search for common good may prevail in the hearts of all,” he told crowds gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the Angelus prayers.

“I am close in my prayers to Ukraine, in particular to those who have lost their lives, and their families,” the pontiff said.
