Lombardi editorial: A dark night in Syria?
VATICAN RADIO – From Syria, news of the massacre of innocent people of all ages and religious beliefs continues to arrive daily. For more than 15 month the toll has continued to rise. Now, more and more people are concluding that the county is approaching a state of civil war.
A country that had been characterised by peaceful coexistence between various components of the Muslim world, and where even ecumenical relations between Christians of different confessions and rites, and interfaith relations between Christians and Muslims, have traditionally been peaceful – witness Pope John Paul II’s unforgettable visit in 2001 – has now descended into violence and chaos. Syria risks disintegration, and there appears to be no way out. The apostolic delegate to Syria, Archbishop Mario Zenari, has described it as a “slow descent to hell”.
