As it’s looking more likely that Pope Francis will visit Ukraine, he had a chat with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy recently.

Their telephone conversation took place last Friday Aug 12, almost six months after the start of the war in Ukraine.

Zelenskyy himself broke the news on Twitter about what he said to Pope Francis, and that he thanked him for his prayers.

Nodding towards a papal visit to Ukraine, Ukrainian Ambassador to the Holy See Andrii Yurash tweeted afterwards that “Ukrainian state and society will be happy to greet the Holy Father.”

Pray for peace in Ukraine! 🙏
