Since the Gaza rallies began on March 30, more than 100 Palestinian demonstrators have been martyred by cross-border Israeli army gunfire. "War begets war and violence begets violence". Israel claims that Hamas is spurring the violence and using it for cover for attacks.

Israeli forces killed 60 Palestinians near the Gaza-Israel border on Monday during demonstrations against the opening of the USA embassy in Jerusalem, in the bloodiest day in Gaza in years.

Cardinal Nichols, the head of Catholics in England and Wales, added his own prayers for the region, saying he had spoken with Fr Mario da Silva, the Catholic parish priest in Gaza, to offer support.

On the other side of the fence, Israeli troops have fired tear gas and live ammunition, spurring the deadliest moment on the border since 2014.

"I am very concerned at the escalation of tension in the Holy Land and in the Middle East, and the spiral of violence that is moving away further from the path of peace, dialogue and negotiation", he said at the end of his general audience in Rome's St. Peter's Square.

Calling for "dialogue, justice and peace, ' Francis says violence 'has never led to peace".

'They are living through traumatic times of remembrance and protest at the dramatically deteriorating humanitarian situation.

'This is a people who are both extremely vulnerable and deprived. Thousands of Palestinians are protesting near Gaza's border with Israel, as Israel prepared for the festive inauguration of a new U.S. Embassy in contested Jerusalem.

In the header of the message, Reuters said that Francis condemned (condemns) the killing in Gaza. Hundreds of families across Gaza are now mourning their loved ones, dead and wounded.

'All violence is destructive to peace efforts and our cry is for a peaceful two state solution with Jerusalem as the shared capital.

Francis explained that in the early years of the Church, Baptism was also called "illumination", and the newly Baptized were called the "illuminated", following Jesus words that he is "the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life".
