These items make visible the invisible spiritual effects of the sacrament, he said, noting how the white garment reminds us of St. Paul's words: "For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ". "Might God help us", he said, before going back to reading from his prepared remarks: "May the tragedy of war lived by you, [with] the force of the spirit, the faithfulness to the ideals and the witness of life become an appeal for the end of the ongoing conflicts around the world and for the search of paths of peace". He also explained the meaning of the baptismal candle, lit from the Paschal candle.

Taiwan's Chinese Regional Bishops' Conference (CRBE) paid their first visit to the Vatican in 10 years, taking the opportunity to inform Pope Francis about the threat of diplomatic isolation posed by China, the Central News Agency reported.

Pope Francis warned Wednesday that the latest spasm of violence in the Holy Land is only hurting chances for peace, and called for revived efforts at dialogue and justice. I express my great pain for the dead and wounded and I am close to all who suffer with my prayers.

"I repeat that the use of violence never lead to peace. War calls for war, violence calls for violence".

Pope Francis Wednesday invited "all the parties involved and the global community to renew their commitment so that dialogue, justice and peace prevail".
