    Just stop for a minute will you?


    Pope Benedict yesterday made a new appeal for peace in the Middle East, calling for an immediate ceasefire.

    "Faced with the bitter consideration that calls for an immediate ceasefire in that torn region have remained unheeded, I feel the urgency to renew my pressing appeal to that effect, asking everybody to give their effective contribution to building a just and lasting peace," the Pope said.

    Benedict made the remarks during the Sunday prayer from his summer residence of Castel Gandolfo, a hill town south of Rome.

    "We know well that peace is first of all a gift of God," the Pope told pilgrims. "But at this moment, we also want to also remember that it is the commitment of all men of good will.
    "Nobody evade this duty," the pontiff said.
