Pope to international community: ‘Don‘t forget the people of Myanmar’
June 21, 2022
CWN Editor's Note: “Again from Myanmar comes the cry of pain of so many people who lack basic humanitarian assistance and who are forced to leave their homes that have been burnt down and to flee violence,” Pope Francis said on June 19.
Referring to a recent episcopal statement on the internal conflict there, the Pope added, “I join the appeal of the bishops of that beloved land, that the international community does not forget the Burmese people, that human dignity and the right to life be respected, as well as places of worship, hospitals, and schools.”
