Pope Francis pleads for peace in Niger: You can't wage war in the name of God

2015-01-21

(-ONLY VIDEO-) During his weekly general audience, Pope Francis made a plea for peace in Niger.  After the recent publication of cartoons depicting Prophet Muhammad, violent protests have erupted against Christians in the country. At least 10 people have been killed and 45 churches destroyed. 

POPE FRANCIS' FULL APPEAL

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I would like for us to pray together, for the victims of the protests that erupted these last few days in Niger.  Children and churches have been targets of brutal acts of violence. Let's ask the Lord for the gift of reconciliation and peace, so that religion is never used for violence or destruction. One cannot wage war in the name of God. I hope that an atmosphere of respect is reestablished as soon as possible, including a peaceful coexistence for the good of everyone. Let's pray to Our Lady for the people of Niger.
