Pope, celebrating Palm Sunday, urges Easter truce in Ukraine
VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis celebrated Palm Sunday by denouncing the "folly of war" and calling for an Easter truce in Ukraine as a prelude to peace even if it means "some sacrifice" during negotiations, saying there is no victory "in planting a flag on a pile of rubble." The pontiff made the appeal during an open air Mass in St. Peter's Square under bright sunshine that marked his first appearance in the vast piazza since the start of the Coronavirus epidemic two years ago.
