Cling and hope for the dawn of the Mercy of God exhorted Pope Francis to the people suffering in the Middle East. In his Wednesday General Audience, the Pope offered words of solidarity with those suffering from the wars and violence in the Middle East.
“How many experiences of exile, expatriation, grief, and persecution that pushes us to doubt even the goodness of God, and His love for us,” the Pope said while meeting with the Arab- speaking pilgrims.
The Pope told them that God’s consolation would be received by those who fight against doubt. “The consolation of the Lord is near to those who pass through the agonizing night of doubt, clinging and hoping for the dawn of the Mercy of God, which the totality of the darkness and injustice will never be able to defeat,” the Holy Father added.
