"Is this a 'JUST WAR', or approved by the Pope in any manner?"

Hi Father,

We are very puzzled with the US siege and imminent war preparation to attack Iraq. Is this justified? What are the Vatican's views on this. Is this a 'JUST WAR', or approved by the Pope in any manner?

Your's in Christ.



I have been trying to address this in recent homilies. (No Refuge and Time of Judgment) As you can see, I do not have any clear answers - and am in great anguish over this war. I would appreciate any comments or questions.
