After the recitation of the Sunday Angelus on August 25, 2013, Pope Francis renewed his urgent call for peace in Syria. “I appeal to the international community to be more sensitive to this tragic situation and make every effort to help the beloved Syrian nation find a solution to a war that sows destruction and death,” he stated. This past July 23, the Most Reverend Francis Chullikatt, Apostolic Nuncio and Permanent Observer of the Holy See to the United Nations, made an intervention regarding Syria in the UN Security Council Open Debate on the Middle East.
