Pope Francis backs UN chief’s call for a cease-fire in all conflicts across globe

Pontifex Pope Francis has backed the UN chief’s call for a cease-fire in all conflicts raging across the globe to help slow the spread of the novel Coronavirus. 

He also said his thoughts are with those constrained to live in groups, citing in particular rest homes for the elderly, military barracks and jails. 

During his traditional Sunday blessing, the pope called for the creation of humanitarian aid corridors, the opening of diplomacy and attention to those who are in situations of great vulnerability. 

He cited U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ recent appeal for a global truce to focus together on the true fight of our lives against the Coronavirus.
