(CNN)-- Pope Francis delivered his Christmas Day message in Saint Peter's Square Monday.


The pontiff prayed for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, praying for the peaceful coexistence of the two groups.

He also urged world leaders to work to protect minority groups in Myanmar, but did not use the word "Rohingya."

Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims have fled persecution in Myanmar.

Critics objected to the pope's decision not to refer to the Rohingya by name during his recent trip to Myanmar and Bangladesh.
