Pope seeks prayers for his ‘peace pilgrimage’ in Kazakhstan


VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis on Sunday requested for prayers to accompany him this week on what he calls his “pilgrimage of peace” in Kazakhstan for a gathering of spiritual leaders.

In remarks to the general public in St. Peter’s Sq., Francis famous that on Tuesday he begins a three-day go to to that central Asian nation to take part in a gathering of heads of world and conventional religions.

“It is going to be an event to fulfill so many spiritual representatives and to dialogue as brothers, animated by the frequent want for peace, the peace for which our world is thirsting,” Francis stated.

“I ask everybody to accompany with prayer this pilgrimage of peace,” the pontiff stated.

He had been hoping to fulfill throughout his journey with the Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill, who has sought to justify Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on religious and ideological grounds in a “metaphysical” battle with the West.

However earlier this summer time, Kirill bowed out of the interfaith gathering.

Francis had the first-ever encounter between a pope and a Russian Orthodox patriarch in 2016. Plans for a second encounter earlier this 12 months have been postponed over the diplomatic fallout of the battle in Ukraine.

After Francis cited his pilgrimage, he urged continued prayers for the Ukrainian individuals, in order that the “Lord offers them consolation and hope.” He stated {that a} Polish cardinal who serves as his official almsgiver is at the moment in Ukraine, to go to numerous communities and provides concrete testimony of the closeness of the pope and the Catholic church.
