CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis on April 7 renewed his appeal for peace in Ukraine and the Holy Land.

“Let us not cease to pray for peace, a just and lasting peace, especially for tormented Ukraine and for Palestine and Israel,” he told pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square. “May the Spirit of the Risen Lord enlighten and sustain all those who work to decrease the tension and encourage gestures that make negotiations possible.”

“May the Lord give leaders the capacity to pause a little in order to deliberate, to negotiate,” he added.
