Thursday is the Catholic holy day called All Soul’s Day, when we pray for the faithful departed and all who have died. I am remembering in my prayers all who have died in the Israel-Hamas war. I want President Biden to know that Pope Francis has called for a ceasefire, more humanitarian aid for the people in Gaza, and more efforts to release the hostages held by Hamas. I ask the president to follow the pope’s message and call for a ceasefire now, to protect lives and start working on a lasting peace.
