Don’t forget Turkey and Syria, Pope urges



Kathleen N. Hattrup - published on 02/12/23

"Let us pray for them, let us not forget them, let us pray and think about what we can do for them."

Pope Francis called for prayerful support for the earthquake victims in Turkey and Syria.

He made an appeal for them – and for Ukraine – after praying the midday Angelus this February 12.

Let us continue to stay close, with prayer and concrete support, to the earthquake victims in Syria and Turkey. I saw on the television programme “A Sua Immagine” the images of this catastrophe, the pain of these peoples who are suffering as a result of the earthquake.

Let us pray for them, let us not forget them, let us pray and think about what we can do for them.

And let us not forget tormented Ukraine: May the Lord open ways of peace and give those responsible the courage to follow them.
