What Pope Francis said about Gaza killings, violence in middle

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

Calling for "dialogue, justice and peace", Francis said violence "has never led to peace". The objective of the meeting is "to discern together, in the presence of God, the responsibility of all and each one in these devastating injuries, as well as to study appropriate and lasting changes that would prevent the repetition of these always reprehensible acts", the statement said.

Pope Francis asked all parties involved in the conflict and the whole worldwide community to renew their promise so that dialogue, justice and peace takes precedence.

The conflict coincided with the United States' inauguration of its first embassy in Jerusalem, a controversial move, which Palestinians have taken as US-backing of Israeli control of the city. He then recited the Hail Mary, inviting all to join him in praying to Mary, Queen of Peace.

In his catechesis for the weekly audience, Pope Francis concluded his commentary on the sacrament of Baptism with reflections on the symbolism of the white garment and baptismal candle.

Francis was reflecting on a biblical passage of St. Paul discerning when it was time to depart his flock within the care of others, a call Francis stated all bishops should make sooner or later.

Those being baptised are also given a candle, lighted from the Easter candle, as the priest says the words, "Receive the light of Christ".

The Holy See is vehemently denying reports that Pope Francis denied the existence of Hell. "May the lord give the grace to all of us to be able to take our leave this way, with this spirit and strength", he said. He explained that is symbolized the fire of faith passing from the godparents and parents to the child.

The Pope last August asked Thailand's Catholic Bishops to contact Wat Pho to request borrowing the manuscript so that it could be translated, said Vira.
