Benedict XVI
"Above all it is my hope that you will preserve in that moment of charity which, by Papal mandate, the Congregation oversees, so that the Holy Land and other Eastern regions may receive material and spiritual support.”

The Pope specifically talked about Syria, by saying that his thoughts and prayers are with those who are suffering through the country's violence, especially the young and defenseless.

He also called on them to not lose faith in this moment of darkness and to continue their fraternity in Christ, so that all violence and bloodshed may end.

Benedict XVI
"In these words I expressed myself five years ago while visiting the Dicastery for Eastern Churches and I now wish to reiterate firmly that same exhortation so as to underline the urgent needs of the present moment.”

The Pope also made an appeal to assist those who have fled their homes in hopes of finding shelter and protection in neighboring countries.

He then concluded the meeting, by asking the Virgin Mary to protect him in his coming trip to Lebanon from September 14 to the 16th
