Pope Francis lights the Advent candle for peace in Syria

We can’t imagine a better way to start this campaign than praying and having the unconditional support of the Holy Father: “Adhering to the initiative of Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), I will light a candle now together with many children that are doing the same in Syria. Let us pray and help Christians to remain in Syria and in the Middle East as witnesses of mercy, forgiveness and reconciliation”.

As a Pontifical Foundation, Aid to the Church in Need has the mandate to act on behalf of the Church.

“I invite you all, together with ACN, to do everywhere in the world, a work of mercy.”
