Pope Reiterates Plea for Peace

LES COMBES, Italy, JULY 28, 2006 ( At the conclusion of his vacations in the Italian Alps, Benedict XVI launched a new, louder call for peace in the Middle East.

"We will not keep quiet, we will do everything possible so that those in power hear us," the Pope said before boarding a plane that took him from Aosta to Rome, from where he headed for Castel Gandolfo.

According to the Holy Father, the "principal instrument" for peace "is prayer, which naturally is not only a cry to God, but also to man."

Benedict XVI also said, responding to journalists, that after more than one year as Pope, "I am beginning to learn my position."
