Pope Francis: “Help us to seek and to find you, risen Lord, to realize that we have a Father and are not orphans; that we can love and adore you. Help us to overcome the scourge of hunger, aggravated by conflicts and by immense wastefulness…Enable us to protect the vulnerable, especially children, women, and the elderly, who are at times exploited and abandoned..Comfort those who have left their own lands to migrate to places offering hope for a better future and the possibility of living their lives in dignity…We ask you, Lord Jesus, to put an end to all war and every conflict, whether great or small, ancient or recent.” Easter Message
