Vatican City, March 22 - Religion plays an
''essential'' role in building bridges for peace, Pope Francis
said at his first audience with ambassadors accredited to the
Vatican on Friday.
''It is not possible to build bridges without encountering
God'' but "nor is it possible to have true ties with God while
ignoring other people'', he said.
The Argentine pope who was elected to succeed Benedict XVI
at a conclave of cardinals on March 13 also recalled his
namesake St Francis of Assisi's teaching of respect for all
creation and care for the environment, ''which all too often we
do not use for good, but eagerly exploit inflicting reciprocal
damage''.
