CWN Editor's Note: “I appreciate that there has been a ceasefire agreement between Armenia (map) and Azerbaijan (map) for humanitarian reasons, in view of reaching a substantial peace accord,” the Pope said on October 11. “Although the truce appears too fragile, I encourage that it be taken up again and I express my participation in sorrow for the loss of human lives, for the suffering endured, as well as for the destruction of homes and places of worship. I pray and invite prayer for the victims and for all those whose lives are in danger.”
