Here's what the Pope actually said during the Easter Mass at the Vatican:
"In hope we entrust to the merciful Lord the framework recently agreed to in Lausanne, that it may be a definitive step toward a more secure and fraternal world."
I don't see praise there. I don't see any lauding. I instead see a prayerful man putting the agreement in God's hands and hoping for the best.
I want to use the Pope's words... and change them just a bit in my, perhaps poor, attempt to make my point.
"In hope my family and I entrust to the merciful Lord my wife's breast cancer, that it may be a definitive step toward her healing."
Am I, in that statement, praising and lauding my wife's breast cancer?
I ask in all honesty and then state unequivocally that the answer is no, I am not and if I am not, how then can anyone with confidence state that the Pope is praising and lauding this agreement?
