The Holy Father Calls for help for the Suffering Christians in Syria

Pope Francis in his angelus prayer yesterday Sunday 07th February pleaded with the International community in an appeal for the Protection to Life to remember with compassion the plight of the Syrian civilians who have been in the pain of terrorism in their regions. He also called for a renewed commitment to the protection of life at all stages.

“I follow with deep concern the dramatic fate of civilian populations involved in heavy fighting in their beloved Syria, and who are forced to leave everything behind in order to escape the horrors of war," the Pope said to the crowds at St. Peter’s Square.

In his post-Angelus address he called on all the political, religious, government and regional leaders to provide aid and contributions towards putting an end to the pains, sorrows and daily pains of the Syrian civilians. The Pontiff also appealed to the international community, and stressed that only a political solution will resolve the conflict and secure “a future of reconciliation and peace in that beloved and martyred country."

The Holy Father then led the crowds in praying the Hail Mary “to Our Lady for the beloved Syria."
