“In them is the body of Christ that, even today, is wounded, stricken, humiliated.”

He added,“There is no religious, political or economic reason that could justify what is happening to hundreds of thousands of men, women and innocent children. We feel deeply united in intercessory prayer and the action of charity towards those members of the body of Christ who are suffering.”
