· The Pope renews his appeal during a meeting with the Synod of the Chaldean Church ·
The Pope renewed his “heartfelt appeal to the international community to adopt every useful strategy aimed at bringing peace to countries terribly devastated by hatred”. This occurred on Monday morning, 26 October, in an audience with the Synod of the Chaldean Church, which is meeting in Rome from 25 to 29 October.
Today, the Pontiff said, “the situation in your lands of origin is gravely compromised by the fanatical hatred sown by terrorism, which continues to cause a great hemorrhage of faithful who leave the lands of their fathers, where they grew up firmly rooted in the furrow of tradition.... I urge you to work tirelessly as builders of unity in all the provinces of Iraq, fostering dialogue and cooperation among all those engaged in public life, and contributing to healing existing divisions while preventing new ones from arising.
