The Conversion of all Terrorist Groups
Albania - On a recent trip to Albania, Pope Francis strongly warns ISIS and all terrorist groups for their use of violence and violating human rights, especially life and religious freedom. He said: "Let no one consider themselves to be the 'armor' of God while planning and carrying out acts of violence and oppression," Pope Francis told diplomats at the presidential palace. "May no one use religion as a pretext for actions against human dignity and against the fundamental rights of every man and woman, above all, the right to life and the right of everyone to religious freedom."
The pontiff pointed to the religious peace in Albania, a country relatively new to the concept of religious freedom. The population is 56% Muslim, 10% Catholic and 7% Orthodox, according to the CIA Fact book. The climate of respect and trust between those groups is a "precious gift," the pontiff said.
Let us pray for the increase of respect and trust between religious groups, nations and within families as a precious gift leading to peace and unity.
Padre Pio, please intercede for all souls in most need of conversion that they may receive an increase in faith, hope and love and seek peace and unity rather than violence and division. In God may all nations experience a new and flourishing peace. Amen
