Pope's Christmas Message: Peace

Pope Benedict XVI is calling for the end of strife in the world and to begin a new era of peace. Pointing towards recent peace talks between Israel's Prime Minister Olmert and the Palestinian Authority's President Mahmoud Abbas as a sign of future possibilities.
In his Christmas Day address at the Vatican, Pope Benedict XVI called for an end to conflicts across the globe and greater concern for the poor, the exploited and all who suffer. Speaking from a balcony overlooking St. Peter's Square, the pontiff called for peace in the Middle East, noting in particular the long war between Israel and the Palestinians. "I place in the hands of the divine Child of Bethlehem the indications of a resumption of dialogue between the Israelis and the Palestinians, which we have witnessed in recent days, and the hope of further encouraging developments," Benedict said in his annual address.
With all the conflict in the world this seems impossible, but we need to remember that all things are possible under God. With our constant prayer I believe we may see the conversion of many hearts towards peace as well as towards Christianity (aren't both one and the same anyways?).
