Pope Francis renewed his calls for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, ensuring the entry of aid, and the rapid release of hostages.

"I appeal once again that access to humanitarian aid be ensured to Gaza, and call once more for the prompt release of the hostages seized on last October 7 and for an immediate ceasefire in the Strip," Pope Francis said on Sunday,according to abc news website.

Francis presided over Mass in a packed St Peter's Square, and then delivered his "Urbi et Orbi" (to the city and the world) blessing and message from the central balcony of St. Peter's Basilica.
