... that human dignity and the right to life be respected, as well as places of worship, hospitals, and schools.

Pope Francis continues to make sure that we don’t forget about Ukraine.

On this feast of Corpus Christi, after praying the midday Angelus, he suggested a series of questions:

And let us not forget the suffering of the Ukrainian people in this moment, a people who are suffering. I would like you all to keep in mind a question: what am I doing today for the Ukrainian people? Do I pray? Am I doing something? Am I trying to understand? What am I doing today for the Ukrainian people? Each one of you, answer in your own heart.

Myanmar

The Holy Father has another crisis in his heart as well.

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. 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. And I bless the Burmese community in Italy, represented here today.
