URBI ET ORBI

In terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis

Romae. In sua oratione pascuali hodie pro multitudine centum milium fidelium, in foro Vaticano, Papa Benedictus XVI incitavit pacem in terra atque finem caedis, praecipue in Syria.

Dum autem orationem habebat Papa, dictator Syriae, Bashar al-Assad, oppugnabat adversarios: fere septuaginta homines (dicitur) necavit.

Heri vesperi, inter missam pascualem in templo Sancti Petri, mentionem fecit Papa tenebrarum quae impendent generi humano: homines res corporeas, quae cerni tangique possunt, facile vident,  facile indagunt, sed quo vadit orbis terrarum aut unde venit, quo vadit vita nostra, quid bonum est, quid malum, haudquaquam videre possunt.
