The Pope tweeted this morning to all of the leaders at the G20 summit that we need to seek a resolution to the current crisis without using military force. Continuing his trend of anti-military messages, Pope Francis tweeted, “Rather, let there be a renewed commitment to seek, with courage and determination, a peaceful solution through dialogue and negotiation of the parties, unanimously supported by the international community.” As a leader of the Catholic world, he has been using his influence to try and persuade world leaders towards a peaceful end.
His angelus planned for tomorrow will be a day of fasting and prayer for peace in Syria and the war-torn regions of the area. We should all be wondering what the leaders of these powerful nations will decide upon, and whether they will take heed to the words of the Holy See?
