6283-PAPPope Francis’ appeal for Venezuela during the General Audience – St. Peter’s Square – February, 26 2014

“I am following with particular concern what is happening these days in Venezuela. I hope profoundly that the violence and hostilities will cease as soon as possible and that the whole Venezuelan people, beginning with political and institutional leaders, will use the time to foster national reconciliation through mutual forgiveness and sincere dialogue, respectful of truth and of justice, capable of addressing concrete topics for the common good. While I assure my constant and fervid prayer, in particular for all those who lost their life in the clashes and for their families, I invite all believers to raise supplications to God, through the maternal intercession of Our Lady of Coromoto, so that the country will soon find peace and concord again.”
