POPE FRANCIS
"Unfortunately, painful news has come from Egypt. I wish to ensure my prayers for all the victims and their families, the injured and all those who are suffering. Let us pray together for peace, dialogue and reconciliation in that dear nation and throughout the world. Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us. Let's all say it, Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us.”

The Pope also said that it has now been 25 years since John Paul II issued the Apostolic Letter Mulieris Dignitatem, about the dignity and vocation of women.

The Pope also said that each affirmative answer to God, as with the example of Our Lady, is one step closer to Heaven.
