Pope calls for “immediate end to senseless war” at Christmas

In his annual Christmas message from the Vatican, Pope Francis made a plea for peace.

Referring to the conflict in Ukraine, he said: “May the Lord… inspire the minds of those who have the power to silence the roar of arms and bring an immediate end to this senseless war.”

While the war in Ukraine took up much of his 10-minute speech, he also spoke of “a severe famine for peace in other regions and in other theaters of this Third World War.”

He highlighted conflicts and humanitarian crises in the Middle East, Myanmar, Haiti and the African Sahel.
