Pope expresses 'great sorrow' over Gaza killings

Pope expresses 'great sorrow' over Gaza killings

"The white garment, as it symbolically expresses what happens in the sacrament, proclaims the condition of those transfigured in divine glory", signifying a new life in Christ, he said. He also explained the meaning of the baptismal candle, lit from the Paschal candle. 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. He explained that is symbolized the fire of faith passing from the godparents and parents to the child. 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.

While Santiago's Bishop Juan Ignacio Gonzalez said that resignations of at least 10 Chilean bishops are pending, the Chilean diocese has continued to deny any departures of its religious leaders. Christian education is a right for children.

Speaking earlier in the audience to a group of Polish World War Two veterans, he said: "We never learn".

POPE FRANCIS " With sadness, I remember the wars.

"I emphasise that the use of violence never brings peace".

A renewed outreach, the pope said, must begin by "learning to discern where God already is present in very ordinary forms of holiness and communion with him".

Francis said he was "very anxious and pained" at the bloodshed and expressed his "great pain for the dead and wounded" and all those who suffer. "War begets war, violence begets violence".

The Holy Father called on all parties concerned and the worldwide community to renew their commitment to ensure that dialogue, justice and peace prevail.

More than 60 Palestinians have been killed - many by Israeli live fire - in the last two days amid violent demonstrations over the opening of a new USA embassy in Jerusalem. At the end of this plea, he prayed a Hail Mary with all the pilgrims for this intention.
