We should believe that the other has the same need for peace – these words of Pope Francis were posted before yesterday on his Twitter profile. The Pope added: “Peace is not obtained if it is not desired. Let us ask the Lord for the gift of peace”.
The Pope’s message of peace was published during the hours of tension in the Middle East, which resulted from the killing of Iranian general Kasem Sulejmani by US forces in Baghdad. Sulejmani was considered one of the most powerful intelligence people in this region of the world. Yesterday, the Vatican reported that Francis is being informed of developments and observing them with prayer.
