Pope Francis: Holy Spirit tells Bishops and Popes when to step down

Pope Francis: Holy Spirit tells Bishops and Popes when to step down”

After expressing his sorrow for those killed and his closeness to those who are suffering, the pope insisted that violence will never bring peace.

The deadly protests coincide with the relocation of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and the anniversary of the "Nakba", or Catastrophe, when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled or were expelled from their homes at the time of Israel's creation. "War calls for war, violence calls for violence".

He concluded by saying that, in the lead up to Pentecost, he echoed Pope Francis' call to pray for the people of Gaza.

Pope Francis, who hails from Argentina, said he knew about Taiwan thanks to his close acquaintance with the late Argentine priest Ricardo Ferreira who worked on the island for almost 50 years.

"I was in Ausonia in the year '59". He also led Catholics in praying a Hail Mary to ask for the intercession of Mary, Queen of Peace.

These items make visible the invisible spiritual effects of the sacrament, he said, noting how the white garment reminds us of St. Paul's words: "For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ".

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.

"To always walk as children of light, persevering in faith", as it says in the Rite of Christian initiation of adults, is the Christian vocation, the pope said.

Preaching May 15 at the Vatican's Santa Marta Residence, the pope noted that St. Paul, who was "compelled by the Holy Spirit" to leave Ephesus and journey to Jerusalem, "shows us the pathway for every bishop when it's time to take his leave and step down".

The meeting was prompted by the reception of 2300-page report by two special envoys sent to Rome by Pope Francis earlier this year.
