Pope Francis read an impassioned prayer asking God to have mercy and bring peace to the war in Ukraine during his Wednesday general audience on March 16.
Here is an English translation of the prayer, originally written in Italian by Archbishop Domenico Battaglia of Naples, southern Italy:
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us sinners.
Lord Jesus, born under the bombs of Kyiv, have mercy on us.
