Myanmar’s Cardinal Bo issues unity rallying cry

Filed under: Asia News |

YANGON, Feb 16, 2017–Cardinal Charles Maung Bo of Yangon has said that only the Blessed Mother can unite all who come from different ethnic groups and religions in Myanmar, which has been beset by civil wars, and conflicts in its western and northern regions.

“We need to pray to her that this country may be more peaceful,” Cardinal Bo told thousands pilgrims at a National Marian celebration in Nyaunglaybin, Bago Division on Feb. 11.

The cardinal told the pilgrims that more than 200,000 of their brothers and sisters are refugees in Myanmar due to war and conflicts.

Neither the government nor the U.N. could bring about unity as “our Blessed Mother has done today bringing us all to her center of hope”.

“Peace is the only way and peace with justice is possible,” Cardinal Bo stressed. “Let the queen of peace our mother plead with her son that the emptiness of hope can be filled with the wine of peace.” (UCAN)
