CWN Editor's Note: At the conclusion of his March 13 general audience, Pope Francis called for “perseverance in prayer for those who are suffering the terrible consequences of war.”

The Pontiff read aloud the text of his appeal, after an aide had earlier read the text of his general audience.

“So many young people, so many, go to die,” he continued. “Let us pray to the Lord that he will give us the grace to overcome the madness of war, which is always a defeat.”
