Pope Francis: “War is always unfair”


A Vatican statement said Pope Francis’s conversation with Moscow Patriarch Kirill over the Internet “focused on the war in Ukraine and the role of Christians and their pastors in doing everything possible to bring peace.” .

At the same time, it is stressed that “Francis thanked the Patriarch of Moscow for this conversation, which is due to the will to suggest, as pastors of their people, a path to peace and to pray for the gift of peace, for a ceasefire.” .

The pope stressed that “the Church should not speak the language of politics, but be based on the word of Jesus.” According to the Vatican, Cyril agreed with this statement.

The two religious leaders stressed the importance of the ongoing negotiation process “and expressed the hope that a just peace could be reached as soon as possible”. The pope, however, wanted to add: “we are shepherds of the same, holy people who believe in God, in the Holy Trinity, in the Holy Mother of God”. “The bill of war is being paid by the people, the Russian soldiers and the people who are being bombed and killed,” the pope told the patriarch of Moscow.

“Once upon a time there was talk in our Churches of holy wars and of just war. Today, all this can not be said. “The Christian consciousness of the importance of peace has developed,” said Pope Francis.
