Pope Urges Koreans To Pray For Unity

(Solmoe, South Korea) -- Pope Francis is urging Koreans to pray and work for a re-unification of their divided countries. The pope's improvised remarks came in response to a question by a girl at a youth rally today in South Korea. The comments are the pope's most specific reference to the division of Korea since he started his five-day trip to South Korea yesterday. In the pope's words, Koreans should aim to reunite as one family "with no victors or vanquished."
