Pope blesses the people

Pope Francis on Sunday (December 3) said he was praying for a peaceful solution to the electoral crisis in Honduras.

A contested presidential election in the poor Central American country has triggered looting and protests. At least three people have died and hundreds have been arrested.

Conducting his weekly Angelus prayer in the Vatican on the first Advent Sunday, only some 12 hours after he returned to Rome from a trip to Asia, Francis said he was also praying for the people of Myanmar and Bangladesh.

The pope said he had been touched by the people in the two countries whom he said remained noble and smiling despite hardships.

Speaking to reporters aboard the plane taking him back to Rome the day earlier, Francis disclosed that he cried when he met a group of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, where he defended their rights by name in an emotional meeting.
