Pope says 'very worried' by Mideast violence

"I express my great pain for the deaths and the wounded", he said.

"I invite all those involved and the worldwide community to renew their commitment so that dialogue, justice and peace may prevail", he said, before leading the thousands of people gathered in the square in praying the "Hail Mary".

The Catholic leaders also said the deaths and injuries along the Israeli-Gaza border "or majority, could have been avoided if non-lethal tools had been used by the Israeli forces".

Francis said that the Paul in the Bible had entrusted the elders of the Church of Ephesus to God, knowing the Lord will take care of them.

Monday's demonstration had coincided with Israel's 70th anniversary - an event Palestinians refer to as "The Catastrophe" - and the relocation of Washington's Israel embassy to Jerusalem, which also took place Monday.

Pope Francis asked all parties involved in the conflict and the whole global community to renew their promise so that dialogue, justice and peace takes precedence. He then recited the Hail Mary, inviting all to join him in praying to Mary, Queen of Peace.

The sacrament of Baptism, the Pope said, concludes with the Our Father, as those who are newly baptised learn to call God "Father" as they receive the fullness of his Holy Spirit. "As the flame of the paschal candle gives light to individual candles, so the love of the Risen Lord inflames the hearts of the baptized, filling them with light and heat".

"I was in Ausonia in the year '59". He explained that is symbolized the fire of faith passing from the godparents and parents to the child.

SANTIAGO-Pope Francis must acknowledge the crimes, coverups, and the need for compensation, Chilean sexual abuse victims demanded in a statement to the emergency Vatican summit on Wednesday.

Expressing his sadness for those killed and injured, and prayers for all who are suffering, the pope underlined that violence is never of any use for bringing peace.

"To always walk as children of light, persevering in faith", as it says in the Rite of Christian initiation of adults, is the Christian vocation, the pope said.
