He invited the faithful to not grow weary of “invoking, through the intercession of Mary, the gift of peace upon the many countries of the world marked by wars and conflicts.”
In particular, he remembered “dear Ukraine, which suffers so much, so much every day.”

The Holy Father also took the occasion to thank all those who are following they Synod, especially those who are accompanying the gathering with their prayers.
He described the ongoing Synod as “an ecclesial event of listening, sharing, and fraternal communion in the Spirit,” and invited everyone “to entrust its work to the Holy Spirit.”
