Pope Sends Cardinal Instead of Synod Fathers on Syria Mission

Pope Benedict XVI has cancelled plans to send a delegation of bishops to Syria and will instead be sending the president of his papal charity to Lebanon to meet Syrian Church members and humanitarian workers. Cardinal Robert Sarah, who has just arrived in Lebanon, will meet with clergy and faithful of the Churches in Syria. He will also be making a $1 million donation in humanitarian and ecclesial aid.
