Pope: ‘At Christmas let us think about the Holy Land’

Pope Francis has once again reiterated his closeness to all the people suffering the ongoing war between Hamas and Israel.

During an audience on Saturday with a group of actors featuring in a Living Nativity Scene at the  Patriarchal Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome, he called on Christians to turn their thoughts and prayers this Christmas to the Holy Land.

Praying for all those suffering the war 

“We know the situation, caused by the war, the consequence of a conflict that has lasted for decades.” he said, remarking that for Palestinians living in Bethlehem too this Christmas will be marked by suffering and grieving, with no pilgrims and celebrations.
