Pope tells followers to love all humans in Syria tweet

Vatican City, September 12 - Pope Francis used Twitter Thursday to call on all those who followed Christ to be merciful towards fellow human beings, using the #prayforpeace hashtag he coined since organizing a fast and a vigil last Saturday to call for a peaceful outcome to the conflict in Syria. "Following Christ means to share his merciful love for every human being," the pope tweeted from his @Pontifex account. The message comes after one posted on Monday using the same hashtag in which the he called on world leaders to try to find a negotiated solution to the Syrian conflict and avert a US attack in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime. "I ask (you) to undertake with courage and decision the path of meeting and negotiation," tweeted the pope that day.
