Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, the prefect of the Congregation for Eastern Churches, also took part in the the Popes vigil for peace at Saint Peters Square.Cardinal Sandri has first hand knowledge of the conflicts the Church faces in countries like Syria, Egypt and Jordan.

CARD. LEONARDO SANDRI 
Prefect, Congregation for the Eastern Churches
"I believe that for all the Church in the Middle East, it has been a gesture that brings so much hope, amid so many tears, suffering, deaths, disillusions, outflow, exiles.” 

The Cardinal joined the 100.000 pilgrims that filled Saint Peter's Square last Saturday. He hopes the vigil impacted every single person present, as well as the countries at the heart of these critical situations. 

CARDENAL LEONARDO SANDRI 
Prefect of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches
"We all came together to form a great choir of invocation and prayer, so that God's heart may, through Jesus Christ, grant us personal conversion and spirit of adherence to our brothers' service. And that the international community may help find ways to achieve reconciliation in Syria.” 

Cardinal Sandri was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and has been apostolic nuncio in Mexico and Venezuela. In 2007 Benedict XVI created him cardinal, and since then has led the Congregation for the Eastern Churches. He plays a key role in inter-religious dialogue, and in the protection of Christian's rights in countries undergoing conflicts.
