Nuncio in Syria calls for interreligious appeal for peace
April 19, 2012
As the ceasefire between the Syrian government and opposition forces breaks down, the apostolic nuncio in Syria has called upon the nation’s religious leaders to issue a joint appeal for peace.
Archbishop Mario Zenari called for a “courageous, unanimous and super partes [impartial] declaration from all the different religious communities’ representatives present in Syria … a moral authority, able to speak courageously and openly to the consciences about the tragic and painful consequences of certain wrong decisions taken by the parties to the conflict.”
