At the end of the catechesis, the Pope repeated his appeal for peace amid the ongoing wars in Ukraine and the Holy Land.

Pope Francis greets pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square for his general audience on Wednesday, April 10, 2024.

“A Christian without courage, who does not turn his own strength to good, who does not bother anyone, is a useless Christian,” the Pope declared during the general audience held on a windy, overcast morning in St. Peter’s Square.
