Pope Francis thanked Cuba for its contribution as a mediator in the peace talks between the Colombian government and the guerrilla FARC-EP, during the Mass he officiated this Sunday at the Havana´s Revolution Square.

His Holiness said it was his duty to direct his thoughts towards Colombia, since the South American country is living a moment of paramount importance, when Colombians are trying to live in peace after decades of armed conflict.

Francis said he trusts there is a solution to what he defined as a long night of pain and violence in Colombia.

He prayed for justice to be present in this process, along fraternity and honor, for peace to be lasting in Colombia, and thanked President Juan Manuel Santos for his support to the talks.
