Pope Urges End To "Senseless" Ukraine War

Pope Urges End To

The head of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis on Sunday appealed for an end to the “senseless” war in Ukraine, in his traditional Christmas Day message broadcast around the world.

The Pope addressed thousands of people gathered in St Peter’s Square, some of them holding Ukrainian flags.

Delivering his message from the central balcony of St Peter’s Basilica, the 86-year-old on Sunday first turned to “our Ukrainian brothers and sisters who are experiencing this Christmas in the dark and cold, far from their homes”. He added;

May the Lord inspire us to offer concrete gestures of solidarity to assist all those who are suffering, and may he enlighten the minds of those who have the power to silence the thunder of weapons and put an immediate end to this senseless war.

… The war in Ukraine has further aggravated this situation, putting entire peoples at risk of famine, especially in Afghanistan and in the countries of the Horn of Africa.

We know that every war causes hunger and exploits food as a weapon, hindering its distribution to people already suffering.

On this day, let us learn from the Prince of Peace (Christ) and, starting with those who hold political responsibilities, commit ourselves to make food solely an instrument of peace.

On Saturday evening, the Pope led the traditional Christmas Eve mass at St Peter’s Basilica, using a wheelchair as he continues to struggle with knee pain.

Meanwhile, the Vatican put the crowd Sunday at 70 000, while 7 000 people attended Saturday evening’s mass, with more following the service on screens outside. | Al Jazeera

And all the prayers 🙏 to the powerful God (that does not exist) goes unanswered so he appeals to the sinful warmonger to end his criminal behavior.

@Dubs: lndeed there could be Catholics in Russia but they are not directly suffering from the war. Russian people are suffering from / for their gvt policies of invading another country.

@Zuze, you're not qualified to speak on behalf of our party. We have functional structures and positions of spokespersons (from cell all the way to national level) are adequately occupied by competent and qualified combrades. You 're becoming a nuisance on this platform.

They would have listened to the Pope if they were catholic nations but turns out both countries are orthodox Christians not catholicism.

I'm pretty sure all those great wars predicted in the Bible were supposed to happen in Europe so let the prophecies fulfilled so that the true messiah may come.

We all know when Jesus comes the entire Europe will be rubles especially the American Babylon , so there's nothing new here it's all part of the process..the Pope needs to chill.

Jesus made it clear that there will be wars and suffering before his return but white people still thinks Jesus is going to come while they're sipping wine on their beaches and living in their mansions....white people are delusional.
