Pope appeals for peace in Syria

30 Oct. 2013: Pope Francis made another call for peace in Syria at the close of his general audience in St. Peter’s Square on Wednesday. The Holy Father, who has made several calls for peace in Syria, ever since the conflict broke out there, called on everyone to continue to pray for peace in that turbulent nation. He said, “I invite you all to pray for the dear nation of Iraq, unfortunately affected daily by tragic episodes of violence, in order that Iraq might find the way that leads to reconciliation, peace, unity and stability.”
Attending the general audience were Iraqi civil authorities and representatives of the various religious groups which the Pope said “constitute the richness of the country.” The Iraqi delegation was accompanied by the President of Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran.
At least a dozen incidents have claimed scores of lives in Iraq this past weekend - the latest in a wave of deadly violence that has been on the rise since April of this year
