Pope Benedict XVI calls for an end to violence

Last week Pope Benedict XVI called for an end to violence in both Nigeria and Syria. Let us send up prayers for our brothers and sisters in those countries, especially for Archbishop Abdo Arbach, who was recently elected Archbishop of the Greek Melkite Metropolitan Archdiocese of Homs, Hama, and Yabroud in Syria.
As Pope Benedict said during his general audience last week, prayer is the surest guide for life’s troubles. Let us remember this as we pray for those suffering around the world, and let us remember that God is always good, always listening, and always merciful.
