To: Padre Pio Prayer Groups
I ask all Prayer Groups to pray for Sri Lanka.
As a General Director of Padre Pio Prayer Groups, I ask all Groups in the World to pray for Sri Lanka, to remove the temptation of war, for peace in the World, for the end of this “piecemeal World War III” - as called by Pope Francis. His request to all Prayer Groups means go back to the origins, when Padre Pio responded to Pope Pius XII's appeal for peace at the outbreak of World War II. Dear Prayer Groups, pray for peace; may Christ relieve our world, so that it may become a focus of love, unity and peace.
