Pope prays for Rwanda on the 20 anniversary of genocide

2014-04-07

The Pope's greeting in the Angelus took more time than usual. Pope Francis remembered that this week marks the 20 anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda, and prayed so that the African country does not give up the path towards peace.

POPE FRANCIS
"I want to express my paternal closeness to the Rwandan people, encouraging them to continue, with determination and hope, the process of reconciliation that has already manifested its fruits, and the commitment to the human and spiritual reconstruction of the country. To all of you I say: Do not be afraid!”

Starting on April 7, 1994, the Hutu majority tried to annihilate the Tutsi population in the country. More 800.000 people were killed. Rwanda will hold a week of national mourning.

In his speech, the Pope also greeted the residents of the Italian city of L'Aquila. Five years ago, an earthquake hit that region and killed 309 people. Today, more than 23,000 people still can't return to their homes.

POPE FRANCIS
"Let's pray for the path of resurrection for the people from L'Aquila. May solidarity and spiritual renewal be forces of material reconstruction.”

The Pope also prayed for the victims of the Ebola virus and asked for more efforts to fight the new outbreak in Guinea and neighboring countries.
