‏Pope Francis: I implore you in the name of God to cease fire and declare a ceasefire!

After reciting the Angelus prayer on Sunday, November 5, 2023, Pope Francis addressed the gathered believers in St. Peter’s Square. He said: “Dear brothers and sisters, I continue to reflect on the grave situation in Palestine and Israel, where many people have lost their lives.” He added, “I implore you in the name of God to cease fire and declare a ceasefire! I hope that all measures will be taken to prevent an escalation of the conflict, and that assistance will be provided to the wounded, with aid reaching the people in Gaza, where the humanitarian situation is very critical. The hostages must be released immediately, including many children; they should return to their families! Yes, let’s think about the children, all the children involved in this war, in Ukraine and other conflicts: this way, their future is being killed. Let us strive to have the strength to say ‘enough’.”
