2015-09-17

Pope Francis met with representatives of Christian humanitarian organizations that work in Syria and Iraq. The Vatican´s Pontifical Council Cor Unum organized the conference to increase collaboration and improve assistance to the region. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Thank you very much for participating in this meeting, meant to share experiences between charitable organizations and local churches. I am grateful for the assistance given to victims of the crisis in Syria, Iraq and neighboring countries. As well as the comfort that your presence and your work inspire in those who suffer.”

The Pope described the situation in the Middle East as an "ocean of pain.” He explained that the wars in Syria and Iraq are being televised by the minute and the entire world is aware of what is happening. So claiming ignorance, he added, is unacceptable. 

The Pope lamented once more that the international community has not been able to stop these wars. He added that weapon traffickers are benefiting while thousands of innocent people lose their lives.

Lastly, the Pope asked to not forget about these victims of war. He reiterated that he will continue to pray for the victims of these wars.
