Pope pleads for peace in Gaza
CWN - November 21, 2012
Pope Benedict XVI issued an appeal for peace in Gaza at the conclusion of his regular public audience on November 21.
Saying that he had been following the escalating violence “with grave concern,” the Pontiff said: “Along with my prayers for the victims and for those who suffer, it is my duty to emphasize once again that hatred and violence are not the solutions to these problems.”
The Pope gave his support to all efforts to achieve a ceasefire, and encouraged the parties involved to “make courageous decisions in favor of peace.”
