Msgr. Zenari will be named a cardinal by Pope Francis on Saturday during the ceremony at the Vatican. His fundamental role as Apostolic Nuncio in Syria led the Pope to appoint him as a cardinal of the Catholic Church.
During his visit to Rome, Msgr. Zenari gave an interview to Vatican Radio and offered his testimony on the dramatic crisis of Syria, and life amidst A war that has lasted for more than five years. Syria is a country where the coexistence between different religions used to be peaceful. However, we are confident that a peaceful coexistence with Christians will be restored after the conflict comes to an end.
