Pope Francis phoned Holy Family parish — the only Catholic parish in Gaza — the evening of Oct. 15, Vatican News reported. Sister Saleh said Father Asaad passed her the phone because he doesn’t speak Italian as well as she does.

There are about 500 people, including “the sick, families, children, the disabled, people who have lost their homes and every belonging.”
