Pope Francis has made an appeal for reaching an agreement that will help to end the suffering in Venezuela.
He did so during his Sunday Angelus address today, July 14, 2019, stressing: “Once again, I wish to express my closeness to the beloved Venezuelan people.”
Noting the people of the South American country have been “particularly tried by the continuing crisis,” Francis appealed: “Let us pray to the Lord to inspire and enlighten the parties involved, so that they can come to an agreement as soon as possible.”
He prayed for an agreement that would “put an end to the sufferings of the people, for the good of the country and of the whole region.”
The Holy Father’s Angelus address today reflected on the parable of the Good Samaritan. Following the midday prayer, the Pope greeted various groups present, including extending a “warm greeting” to the Polish faithful taking part in the annual Pilgrimage of Radio Maria to the Shrine of Czestochowa.
The Holy Father wished everyone a good Sunday, lunch, and reminded them to pray for him.
