Card. Pio Laghi
I tried every, in my opinion, argument to stress that point that with peace nothing is lost, with war you will get into a very great turmoil, get into those Arab world. Certainly, when you make examinations of conscience, you can say always I should have, maybe knelt down or done something in order to say, Mr President, please, Mr President, please. I did that, but maybe I wasnt so forceful enough.
President Bush sent a message of condolence to the Pope, in which he praised Cardinal Laghis tireless work for peace and justice throughout the world.
