Vatican City, Apr 4 (EFE) .- (Camera: Álvaro Padilla) Pope Francis on Sunday urged the international community to "a common commitment to overcome the delays" in the distribution of coronavirus vaccines and to "promote their distribution, especially in the poorest countries ", in the Easter message he delivered from inside an empty St. Peter's Basilica.FOOTAGE OF THE MASS AT VATICAN CITYSOUNDBITES OF POPE FRANCIS-Therefore, in the spirit of an internationalism of vaccines, I urge the entire international community to a common commitment to overcome the delays in their distribution and to promote their distribution, especially in the poorest countries.-The Lord give comfort and support the fatigue of doctors and nurses, all people, especially the most fragile, require assistance and have the right to access the necessary treatments.-There are still too many wars and too much violence in the world! May the Lord, who is our peace, help us to overcome the mentality of war. May he grant those who are prisoners in conflicts, especially in eastern Ukraine and Nagorno-Karabakh, to return safely to their families, and inspire leaders around the world to stop the arms race.-I feel close to young people around the world and, at this moment, in a particular way to those in Myanmar, who are committed to democracy, making their voices heard in a peaceful way, knowing that hatred can only be dispelled with love-The clamor of arms is finally silenced in beloved and tormented Syria, where millions of people currently live in inhuman conditions, as well as in Yemen, whose vicissitudes are surrounded by a deafening and scandalous silence, and in Libya, where it is finally glimpsed the exit to a decade of bloody strife and confrontations.-Israelis and Palestinians once again find the strength of dialogue to reach a stable solution that allows two States to coexist in peace and prosperity.
