      When will peace come

      Syria has had a terrible civil war for six years now. When will peace come?
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      With all the complaining about Trump in the news we rarely (in the states) hear about other countries...so I Googled and came across an article by the BBC of What's Happening in Syria?

      "A few weeks ago an alliance of Syrian Kurdish and Arab fighters, backed by America, took back the city of Raqqa in the north-west."

      At the end of the article...

      "Lots of countries are trying to continue to supply aid, such as food and emergency supplies.

      The rest of the world will continue to try to work out if there is a way to help Syria achieve peace. But for the time being, the conflict continues.

      If you're upset by this story, or anything in the news, click here for advice."
