Pope Francis, who met with the bishops of Sri Lanka as part of their visit to Vatican, encouraged the bishops in their efforts of reconciliation and healing of the nation.

Observing that the Church counts among its faithful both sides of the civil war, the Pope remarked that “as the country seeks to come together and heal, the Church is uniquely positioned to provide a living image of unity in the faith.

The pope praised the Church’s charitable work, especially the work of Caritas Sri Lanka which provided much aid following the 2004 tsunami.

He then reminded the bishops to continue the work for the poor, recalling his recent letter where he says “until exclusion and inequality in society and between peoples is reversed, it will be impossible to eliminate violence.”

The pope noted the rich diversity of religious traditions and commended the bishops in their fruit-bearing efforts in ecumenical and interreligious dialogue.
