Pope Francis appeals for peace in the Holy Land

Aleteia - published on 11/19/14

Pope Francis: “I am following with great concern the alarming increase in tension in Jerusalem and other areas of the Holy Land, with unacceptable episodes of violence that spare not even places of worship. I promise a special prayer for all the victims of this tragic situation and for all those who are suffering from its consequences. From the bottom of my heart, I make an appeal to the parties involved to put an end to the spiral of hatred and violence and to take bold decisions for reconciliation and peace. Building peace is difficult, but living without peace is torment.”
