CWN Editor's Note: At the conclusion of his December 6 audience, Pope Francis called for prayers for those suffering from war, particularly in Ukraine, Israel, and Palestine, and reiterated his oft-repeated sentiment that war is always a defeat for humanity, with arms manufacturers the only ones to profit from war.

Saying that he was feeling much better but still struggling from the effects of illness, the Pontiff asked an aide to read his Wednesday catechesis. Nonetheless, he personally made the appeal for prayer for peace.

The Pope’s words about peace were not included in the Vatican’s English translation of his remarks.
