On Sunday, Pope Francis called for peace in Ukraine. He said the world is marking an “Easter of War.”
Pope Francis: “Peace upon tormented Ukraine, sorely tried by the violence and destruction of the cruel and senseless war into which it was dragged. On this terrible night of suffering and death, may a new dawn of hope soon arise. Let there be a decision for peace. May there be an end to the flexing of muscles while people are suffering. Please, please, let us not get used to war. Let us commit ourselves to imploring peace, from our balconies and in our streets. May the leaders of nations hear people’s plea for peace.”
During his Easter address the Pope also warned about nuclear war and called for peace in Jerusalem.
