Pope 'very worried' by Gaza violence

"I Express my great sorrow at the deaths and injuries of people, I bow in prayer and compassion for all the victims", said the Pontiff.

The conflict coincided with the United States' inauguration of its first embassy in Jerusalem, a controversial move, which Palestinians have taken as US-backing of Israeli control of the city. "War incites war, violence incites violence".

During his homily, Francis also said that St. Paul was uncompromising in ministry, saying that service without compromise is essential for pastors wishing to find peace.

Pope Francis asked all parties involved in the conflict and the whole worldwide community to renew their promise so that dialogue, justice and peace takes precedence.

At the end of his morning homily Tuesday, Pope Francis asked Catholics to pray for Priests, Bishops, and the Pope, who he said, must learn to leave their posts when it becomes necessary. During the battle, the abbey of Monte Cassino, founded by St. Benedict of Nursia in 524 was destroyed.

POPE FRANCIS " With sadness, I remember the wars. He said it expresses new life as creatures who reflect the glory of God. In the last century, there were two big ones.

Francis has previously responded to the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital by urging respect for the status quo of the holy city.
