Pope Francis appealed to political leaders on Sunday, urging them to seek peace amid escalating tensions between Russia.
The news is very worrying. I entrust every effort for peace to the intercession of the Virgin Mary and to the conscience of the political leaders.
the pontiff said following his weekly Angelus prayer, before leading the faithful gathered in St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican City in silent prayer.
Francis has made numerous calls for peace regarding the situation at the Russia border, and led an international day of prayer for last month.
