Pope Prays For Students Right To Education During War And Terror Threats

As the world celebrates the first International Day to Protect Education from Attack on Wednesday, Pope Francis appealed to the international community to ensure educational structures are protected from attacks.

“I invite you to pray for students who are seriously deprived of the right to education due to war and terrorism,” he said during his weekly General Audience on Wednesday in the Vatican.

“I urge the international community to do its utmost so that the structures that must protect young students be respected,” he said, speaking in Italian.  “May efforts that guarantee safe environments for their education not wain, above all in situations of humanitarian crises,” he added.
