(ANSA) - VATICAN CITY, MAY 22 - "The more we feel that the heart is agitated, the more we feel nervousness, impatience, anger within us, the more we must ask the Lord for the Spirit of peace" and "let's ask it also for those who live next to us, to who we meet every day, and for the leaders of the Nations ".
The Pope said this to the Regina Caeli.
From Cascia, his closest collaborator, the Vatican Cardinal Secretary of State, Pietro Parolin, expressed the hope that "negotiations are started as soon as possible and that the much desired peace can finally be reached".
In this the Holy See remains available to facilitate the process.
"The Pope could still continue to play a very significant role in this conflict and in his resolution. There are spaces",
said the Vatican foreign minister, Msgr.
Paul Richard Gallagher, at the end of his mission in Ukraine.
