Pope Francis called on today (Sunday) to stop the fighting in Israel and the Palestinian territories due to the recent events.
Pope Francis affirmed that “the killing of many innocent people in recent days, including children, is unacceptable.”
In a weekly sermon in St. Peter’s Square, the Pope said: “I call for calm … and I ask officials to stop the clamor of weapons and walk on the path of peace.”
He added, “Many innocent people have died, including children as well. This is a terrible thing … unacceptable … Their death is a sign that people do not want to build a future, but rather destroy it. I wonder where the hatred and revenge will lead them?”
