POPE Francis said Wednesday there must be “reparation” for the “evil” committed during Sri Lanka’s civil war, as he visited a Catholic shrine that was on the front line of the decades-long conflict.

“We ask also for the grace to make reparation for our sins and for all the evil which this land has known,” the pope said in a prayer at the shrine.
