#PrayForSyria

I am deeply troubled by the current situation in which, despite the instruments available to the international community, there is still difficulty in agreeing to a common action in favour of peace in Syria. While I continue to pray unceasingly for peace, and invite all people of good will to do the same, I renew my appeal to all those with political responsibilities to ensure that justice and peace prevail
