Pope Benedict led Easter Mass in Rome Sunday and called for Christians and peoples of all faiths to come together in peace. On this day that Christians mark the rebirth of Jesus Christ, the Pope urged the world to renew their commitment to the hope that one day the world can live as one -Â united.
Pope Benedict’s words of peace ring true regardless of your religion, citizenship or geography.
With wars raging across the globe, Benedict called for the world’s peoples to put aside their differences and embrace what connects them all,Â humanity.Â
With the backdrop of aÂ rain-soaked EasterÂ day, the Pope said “in particular, how can we fail to remember certain African regions, such as Darfur and Somalia, the tormented Middle East, especially the Holy Land, Iraq, Lebanon and finally Tibet, all of which I encourage to seek solutions that will safeguard peace and the common good.”
