Biden's son agrees to testify on one condition Biden's son agrees to testify on one condition

The Pope said his traditional Sunday prayer from the window of his Vatican office overlooking St. Peter's Square and also addressed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Pope Francis said, "I continue to follow with great pain what is happening in Israel and Palestine. I think of many, especially the young and the elderly. I reiterate my call for the release of the hostages and I ask that it be ensured that children, the sick, the elderly, women and all civilians are not victims of the conflict."

"Humanitarian law must be respected, especially in Gaza, where it is urgent and necessary to guarantee humanitarian corridors and provide assistance to all people," the Pope said.

Inviting the faithful to pray and fast for peace in the Middle East on October 17, the Pope said, "Too many of our brothers and sisters have died. Please do not shed any more innocent blood, neither in the Holy Land, nor in Ukraine, nor anywhere else. Enough is enough. Wars are always defeat."
