Pope prays for peace in Syria, after two Orthodox Christian archbishops kidnapped

2013-04-24

POPE FRANCIS
"The kidnapping of the Greek Orthodox and Syriac Orthodox metropolitans of Aleppo, of who's release there are contradictory news, is an ulterior sign of the tragic situation the beloved nation of Syria faces, where violence and weapons continue to sow death and suffering. While praying for the two bishops and their safe return to their communities, I ask God to light their hearts. I renew my appeal from Easter for an end to the bloodshed, for necessary humanitarian aid for the population, and to find as soon as possible a political solution to the crisis.”

The Greek Orthodox and Syriac Orthodox patriarchates say they're hoping to confirm the safe release of Syriac Orthodox Metropolitan of Aleppo Yohanna Ibrahim and Greek Orthodox Metropolitan of Aleppo Boulos Yazigi. Cathoic aid group L'Ouevre d'Orient announced the two prelate had been freed, but there has been no official confirmation.
