Vatican Congratulates Trump on His Pres.Victory; Prays Jesus Enlightens Him to Bring World Peace

Congratulating Donald Trump today (November 9, 2016) for his victory in the U.S. presidential election, the Vatican secretary of state expressed hope that people would work together  "to change the global situation, which is a situation of serious laceration, serious conflict," the Catholic Herald (British) website reports.

Cardinal Pietro Parolin -- Pope Francis' top aide -- spoke about the election today during a meeting at Rome's Pontifical Lateran University.

"We send our best wishes to the new president that his administration may truly be fruitful," the cardinal said.

He added: "And we also assure him of our prayers that the Lord would enlighten and sustain him in his service to his country naturally, but also in serving the well-being and peace of the world."
