Prayers for Beirut

Published on 05/08/2020

Pope Francis calls for prayers for the people of Beirut and a united effort to help Lebanon overcome “this serious crisis”.”

“Let us pray for the victims and their family members, and let us pray for Lebanon so that with the effort of everyone in society – political and religious – it may face this tragic and painful moment and, with the help of the international community, overcome the serious crisis it is experiencing,” the Pope said at the end of his general audience on August 5.
