Despite pain of war, Christians in Aleppo remain hopeful, Vatican official says.


Msgr. Giampietro Dal Toso, who recently concluded a six-day visit to Aleppo as the Vatican’s special envoy, told Journalists that “what impressed me the most is that there are signs of life beginning again.”

“The impression I got of the Christian community is that people are very close to each other, connected, and that they’re strong,” he said. “They’ve reacted and continue to react to this situation with hope.”

“However, the situation remains very difficult: the fact that the city is once again under control of the government does not mean that everything has gone back to normal,” he added.
