//Pope Francis asks for prayers for Syrian children on International Children’s Day

Pope Francis has urged the faithful to join in prayer today, Wednesday, 1 June, International Children’s Day, with a special thought for the children in Syria.

Speaking after the Angelus Prayer in Saint Peter’s Square Pope Francis said that it will be particularly significant for Christian communities in Syria where Catholics and Orthodox will hold a special prayer for peace, in which children will be the protagonists.

“Syrian children invite children of the world to join them in their prayer for peace” he said.
