Friday's Synod of Bishops began with Pope Francis making an appeal for peace and reconciliation in the Middle East

"We are following, with great worry, what's happening in Syria, Iraq, Jerusalem and Cisjordan, where we are witnessing rising violence that affects innocent civilians.” 

The Pope called on the international community to do its part in resolving this crisis. It's not just about the Middle East. The Pope also called for action in Africa.
