Pope calls for peace in world torn apart by terror
Pope Francis Sunday in his traditional kersttoespraak called for peace in a world that is torn by war and terror. He broke a lance for refugees, migrants and anyone who is affected by the economic crisis.
Also called the church and claiming Palestinians and Israel “have the courage to show their hatred and desire for revenge, set aside and a new page in their history”. The tensions in the Middle East were the last week after the UN adopted the kolonisatiedrift of Israel in the Palestinian territories condemned.
“Only when there is peace, there is a chance for a more prosperous future for everyone”, said the head of the catholic church in his speech from the balcony of St. peter’s Basilica in Vatican city.
It was the fourth time that Francis a kersttoespraak loved. The pope closed his speech, as usual, with the blessing of “merry christmas” and the blessing Urbi et Orbi (for the city and for the country).
