Pope Francis condemns ‘intolerable brutality’ of ISIS

Pope Francis called for silent prayers for “these sisters and brothers 

who suffer for their faith in Syria and Iraq”. At the conclusion of his 

March 1 Angelus address, Pope Francis renewed his call for prayers for 

Christians and others persecuted in Syria and Iraq. “We want to assure 

those involved in these situations that do not forget them, but are close 

to them and pray insistently,” Pope Francis said, as he called upon all 

“according to their ability to work to alleviate the suffering of those who 

are afflicted, often only because of the faith they profess.”
