Pope Francis breaks down as he speaks about war-stricken Ukraine in public prayer


The situation of millions of Ukrainians who remain shaken by the Russian attacks is known to the whole world. As the people of the country struggle to survive in the crisis situation, it has also drawn global attention from other countries who are stepping up to show solidarity with the people of Ukraine. In addition to this, many also condemned the Russian attacks and showed their protest by imposing sanctions on Russia. In the midst of this, as the country continues to wage war for several months now, Pope Francis, who is also among those condemning the Russian attacks, recently broke down when speaking about the situation in Ukraine. It was during his visit to Rome for his annual Christmas visit that the Pope addressed the people and was seen to get emotional.

A video of the same was shared by ABC News on its Instagram handle. While the post’s caption reads, “Pope Francis breaks down talking about war-stricken Ukraine,” the video clearly shows how Francis burst into tears during his speech.


As the video plays, we can see Pope Francis addressing the people as he spoke about the situation in Ukraine and the suffering of millions of Ukrainians. During this time, he was overwhelmed with emotions and cried. As he leaned over and delivered his speech, people around him applauded and asked him to continue.

As soon as the video was posted, it went viral on the internet and caught the attention of many people. Many took to the comments section and shared their reactions. One wrote, “It’s beautiful to see a sincere prayer raised to the Lord by a man who pledged his life to serve Him,” while another commented, “I think we’ve become desensitized to human suffering. The pope probably knows more about the atrocities taking place in Ukraine. Everyone should cry…”

It is pertinent to note that this is not the first time that the pope has been emotional about Ukraine. On several occasions in the past, he was seen expressing his solidarity with the people and also called for peace talks instead of violence.
