Pope Reiterates Plea for Syria

Pope Francis today made another plea for peace in Syria, urging all parties involved in the conflict to strengthen dialogue, which he said is the only path to peace.

The Pope spoke about the war-torn country today after praying the midday Regina Caeli with those gathered in St. Peter’s Square.

“I have heard with great sorrow the dramatic news coming from Syria, he said, “about the spiral of violence that continues aggravating the already desperate humanitarian situation of that country, particularly in the city of Aleppo, and causing innocent victims, even among children, the ill and those who with great sacrifice are trying to help their neighbor.

“I exhort everyone involved in the conflict to respect the ceasefire and to strengthen the ongoing dialogue, which is the only path that will lead to peace, the Pope added.
