We should beg God to put an end to the violence and destruction wrought by war, especially as the world seems to prepare for another conflict, Pope Francis said on All Souls' Day.
Today "the world is at war again and is preparing itself to go more heavily into war. No more, Lord! No more! With war, you lose everything!" the Pope said Nov. 2.
"This is what we should say today; that we pray for all the dead, but in this place we pray in a special way for these young people (killed in war)."
Pope Francis said gave a short homily at Mass for All Souls' Day at the Sicily-Rome American Cemetery and Memorial in Nettuno, an Italian cemetery for American personnel killed in World War II.
