"We must truly pray to the Spirit to change our hearts to better understand his will and to give us the strength to continue to work for justice and peace", the archbishop said.
He expressed his deep concern "at the escalation of tension in the Holy Land and in the Middle East, and the spiral of violence that is moving away further from the path of peace, dialogue and negotiation". These words, the Pope said, remind us that we are not the light, but rather we are called to receive the light of Christ who has risen from the dead and overcome the shadows of evil.
Speaking at the end of the general audience, Francis expressed his sorrow for the dead and wounded, saying he is "close with prayer and affection to all those who suffer" and repeating that violence does not lead to peace.
"War calls war, violence calls violence".

If children are being baptised, then it is the task of parents and godparents to nurture the flame, helping them to persevere in their faith.
