Pope Francis has renewed his appeal for the Syrian population, and has made another appeal for China.
Toward the end of his General Audience this morning, Feb. 12, 2020, in the Vatican’s Paul VI Hall, he stressed: “I would like everyone at this moment to pray for the beloved and tormented Syria.”
“Many families, many elderly, children, must flee the war,” Francis decried, lamenting: “Syria has been bleeding for years. Let us pray for Syria.”
“Also a prayer,” Pope Francis said, “for our Chinese brothers who suffer from this cruel disease.”
“May they find the way to recovery as soon as possible,” he concluded.
