The Holy Father's Statement on the Tragic Events of Gaza
With profound trepidation I follow the tragic events that happened in the proximity of the Gaza Strip. I feel the need to express my profound grief for the victims of the most painful events, which preoccupy all those who have at heart peace in the area. Once again I repeat with a heartbroken spirit that violence does not resolve controversies, but increases the tragic consequences and generates more violence. I appeal to all those who have political responsibility at the local and international level, to search incessantly for just solutions through dialogue, in order to guarantee to the peoples of the area better conditions of life, in concord and serenity. I invite you to join my prayer for the victims, for their families and for all who suffer.
May the Lord sustain the efforts of those who do not tire of working for reconciliation and peace.
