Pope encourages children to join Syria’s children in praying for peace
May 30, 2016
At the conclusion of the May 29 Mass for the jubilee of deacons, Pope Francis delivered a brief Angelus address in which he greeted various groups gathered in St. Peter’s Square and encouraged prayers for peace in Syria.
“Next Wednesday, June 1st, on the occasion of International Children’s Day, the Christian communities of Syria, both Catholic and Orthodox, will together make a special prayer for peace, which will have children themselves as its protagonists,” he said. “The Syrian children invite children from around the world to join their prayer for peace.”
