"Work towards a just political solution to the challenges still facing the country," he said in his appeal made after an inter-religious delegation from Sri Lanka had an audience with him last week.

"I trust, moreover, that the international community will strive to meet the humanitarian and economic needs of Sri Lanka and I raise my prayers to Our Lady of Madhu, that she may continue to watch over that beloved land," the Holy Father said.

Dr. Malcolm Ranjith, Vidyalankara Pirivena Chief Incumbent and Sabaragamuwa University Chancellor Most Ven.
