Papal Appeal for Peace

  • "I continue to follow with great apprehension the tragic armed conflict that has caused a large number of victims and a lot of suffering in Libya, especially among the civilian population," said the Pontiff — Pope calls for dialogue and an end to bloodshed in Libya and Syria. " renew a pressing appeal so that the path of negotiations and dialogue may prevail over that of violence, with the help of international organisations that are looking for a solution to the crisis. I also offer my prayers and moved participation to the work the local Church is carrying out on behalf of the population, in particular the consecrated people present in hospitals."

  • reminds us, not that readers of this blog need to be reminded, that "Pope Benedict and Pope John Paul II opposed the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq" — The Popes Opposed the War — Period.
