Pope Francis, in a meeting with Mar Dinka IV- head of the Assyrian Church of the East, said that the meeting “is marked by the suffering we share on account of the wars that beset various regions of the Middle East and in particular for the violence suffered by Christians and members of other religious minorities, especially in Iraq and Syria.”

“When we think of their suffering, it is natural to overcome the distinctions of rite or confession,” the Pope told the Patriarch of the Assyrian Church. He said that all Christians are united in prayer for their suffering brethren in the Middle East.
