Last Sunday, in the Vatican, following the Angelus prayer, Pope Francis appealed for moderation and dialogue in Jerusalem after the tensions and acts of violence that took place in the city in recent days.
The eyes of the whole world are on Jerusalem since July 14, when clashes broke out near the Al Aqsa Mosque.
Even Pope Francis appealed for an end to violence. On Sunday 23, after the Angelus prayer, the Holy Father invited the parties involved to moderation and dialogue.
“I have been following with trepidation the grave tensions and violence that took place in these past days in Jerusalem. I feel the need to express a heartfelt appeal to moderation and dialogue. I invite you to join me in prayer so that the Lord will inspire the purpose of reconciliation and peace in all.”
