Pope to send a delegation to Damascus: Vatican

Posted by

Story Summary

Pope Benedict XVI will send a delegation to Damascus to express his solidarity with the Syrian people, the Vatican said on Tuesday, as violence escalated with deadly air attacks unleashed by the regime on rebel positions.

In remarks broadcast by Vatican Radio, Bertone said the delegation would likely travel to Damascus next week.

Bertone said the delegation would convey the pope’s “brotherly solidarity with the entire population”, adding that the synod supported the decision.

The 262 bishops gathered in the Vatican for the synod had begun their work on October 9 praying for peace in Syria.
