Pope Francis calls for peace in Israel

Pope Francis appeals for peace in Jerusalem

Pope Francis calls for peace and a shared solution to the violence occurring in Jerusalem, as Palestinian protesters continue to clash with Israeli police.
 

By Devin Watkins & Nathan Morley

After renewed clashes in the streets of Jerusalem, Pope Francis on Sunday urged all parties to seek a common solution and put aside violence.

The Pope said at the Sunday Regina Coeli address that he is following the events in Jerusalem with concern.

“I pray that the city might be a place of encounter and not of violent clashes, a place of prayer and peace,” he said.

“I invite everyone to seek shared solutions, so that the multi-religious and multi-cultural identity of the Holy City might be respected and that fraternity might prevail,” said the Pope.

“Violence generates only violence,” he concluded. “Enough with the clashes.”

What’s the situation in Jerusalem?

The Pope’s appeal came following the latest in a series of violent confrontations which have coincided with the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The unrest was sparked when Israel blocked off a popular area where Palestinians traditionally meet at the end of their day-long fast.

That sparked a fortnight of clashes before Israel finally recanted and lifted the restrictions.

Renewed violence

But the clashes resumed last week after Israel threatened to evict dozens of Palestinians from a district of east Jerusalem.

Now in the latest round of violence, 136 people were wounded at the Al-Aqsa compound, and elsewhere in Jerusalem, on Friday and Saturday nights.

According to the Palestinian Red Crescent, most were hurt after being hit in the face and eyes by rubber bullets.

J&P Questionnaire

Posted on 26th March, 2021

Encouraged by the Pope’s recent letters, “Laudato Si” and “Fratelli Tutti”, some of us wish to begin meeting as a J&P group in the parish. We aspire, by getting involved in J&P issues in and around our area, to deepen our commitment to a Christian Life. As this is a group working on behalf of the Christian Community of St. Vincent de Paul, we would like to ask your opinions. Can we, therefore, please ask you to answer the following questions and return them to Fr. Terry at the Parish House or complete online by Easter Sunday?

An Economy without Human Trafficking

Holy Family Hospital Bethlehem Press Release

Posted on 30th December, 2020

Dear Ms Johnson,

The recent published comments on Twitter by officials of the Home Office reveal the callous attitude of this Office to the plight of Refugees and Asylum Seekers.

These traumatised people do not, surely, take lightly the huge risks on open boats to cross the cold waters of the English Channel. They are fleeing unliveable conditions in their own country in the hope of finding a peaceful and more humane future in the country with the 6th largest economy in the world. They have the right to be listened to and to be treated with respect and empathy from the moment they show their intention of seeking asylum on our shores.

Please do your utmost to insist that the government in Westminster ensures that all refugees and asylum seekers are treated fairly and with dignity, whether they are on the French shore line of the English Channel, on a legal or illegal crossing attempt, or on the shores of the South of England.

Our common humanity demands this, even before we appeal to our Christian traditions of hospitality and care for the outcast.

Yours sincerely,

 

The Community of Missionaries of Africa,

St. Vincent de Paul Parish,

13 Hardy Street,

Liverpool L1 5JN
