The president of the USCCB encouraged Catholics to join Pope Francis for a day of prayer and fasting for peace on Feb. 23.
Pope Francis said the Italian and English translations of the "Our Father" can give believers the wrong impression that God leads people into temptation.
"Both of them had prepared before God -- with the sacrament of penance -- and I married them."
"The kingdom of heaven means finding in Jesus a God who gets involved with the lives of his people."
"Jesus' heart was not moved by ideas or concepts but by faces, persons."
The Catholic communities in both countries are very small yet the influence of the Church is disproportionately large because of Catholic schools, hospitals and other activities.
Pope Francis pleaded with the international community to assist Bangladesh helping refugees and helping to resolve the crisis in Myanmar that led them to flee.
Catholic social teaching has clear messages of caring for strangers, the importance of hearing their stories and understanding their needs.
"He loved Jesus and his flock more than he loved life. This is the meaning of martyrdom."
The Holy Father asks that we join in prayer that they may find God's consolation and love.
