Pope calls for end to Holy Land violence (3)

The pontiff is shown in a still image from the documentary “Pope Francis A Man of His Word.”

Israel claims that Hamas is spurring the violence and using it for cover for attacks.

VATICAN CITY, Holy See - Pope Francis said Wednesday, May 16, he was "very worried" by escalating violence in the Middle East after 60 Gazans were shot dead by Israeli troops while protesting the U.S. embassy's move to Jerusalem.

Deadly protests along the Israel and Gaza border over the last seven weeks escalated Monday after Israeli troops opened fire on protesting Palestinians, resulting in 58 dead and another 2,700 injured, most from sniper-fire, according to the ministry of health.

"I express my great sorrow for the dead and wounded and I am close through prayer and affection to all those who suffer", he added.

Announced late past year, this week President Donald Trump officially moved the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, causing protests among the Arab population in both in Israel and Palestine. "War begets war and violence begets violence".

"May God have mercy on us", Francis said.

Francis didn't single out either the Israelis or the Palestinians in his comments, instead urging all sides and the worldwide community to "renew their commitment so that dialogue, justice and peace prevail".

Pope Francis passes by a banner of Philippines' believers during a weekly general audience at St Peter's square on May 16, 2018 in Vatican.

During the cathechesis, the pope explained the significance of the white garment worn when receiving the sacrament.

St. Paul goes on to explain, the pope said, that to "have clothed" one's self with Christ means to live and cultivate virtue. "But above all these things, clothe yourselves with charity, which unites them in a flawless way".

It is now known whether Pope Francis will also hold private audiences with particular bishops.

"We are called to receive [the candle's] splendor!" he said.

"I was in Ausonia in the year '59". "May the Lord grant all of us the grace to be able to take our leave and step down in this way [like Paul], with that spirit, with that strength, with that love for Jesus Christ and this faith in the Holy Spirit".

Pope Francis has previously hinted at the possibility that he might resign, saying in 2015 that the Catholic Church should not have "leaders for life", and noting in 2014 that Pope Benedict XVI's 2013 resignation "cleared a path" for future papal resignations.
