Recognizing the Rights of All People is Important: Pope

Pope urges dialogue amid Jerusalem controversy

He said he hoped "wisdom and prudence prevail, in order to avoid adding new elements of tension to a global panorama that is already convulsed and marked by so many and cruel conflicts".

Trump stated, on Tuesday, that the United States will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, but did not mention whether the Middle Eastern country's US embassy would be moved from Tel Aviv to the "new" lead city. numerous speculative reports suggest that the American head of state will establish Jerusalem's only embassy.

Advent is a time to be watchful and alert to the ways one strays from God's path, but also to signs of his presence in other people and in the beauty of the world, Pope Francis said.
