Papal appeal for peace in Gabon

September 12, 2016

Following his September 11 Angelus address, Pope Francis called for peace in Gabon, which is suffering from post-election violence.

“I entrust to the Lord the victims of the clashes and their families,” he said to the crowds in St. Peter’s Square. “I join the bishops of that dear African country to invite the parties to reject all violence and to always aim for the common good. I encourage everyone, particularly Catholics, to be builders of peace within the law, in dialogue and fraternity.”
