President Shimon Peres credited Pope Francis's visit to Israel with the power to bring peoples of different beliefs and religions together in peace in an address delivered on Monday at the President's Residence.

"I believe that your visit and call for peace will echo through the region and contribute to revitalizing the efforts to complete the peace process between us and the Palestinians, based on two states living in peace," he added.

Peres called the pontiff "a rock against any attempt to connect religion to terror," adding that "In the face of moral corruption we must show moral responsibility. And make clear that there is no greater contradiction than that between faith and murder."
