Pray for the Christians in Syria
The situation in Syria is very grave. We ask your prayers so that the country does not fall into the hands of extremists. We ask for your prayers for the safe release of two kidnapped Archbishops. We ask for your prayers for the repose of the soul of Rev. Deacon Fautuh murdered this week in Aleppo. We ask your prayers for all who are suffering because of the conflict in Syria.
You can light a candle here: and take a moment of silence and prayer.
No doubt, Christians in Syria have become targets of attacks and kidnapping. There is a sad and violent humanitarian drama unfolding in Syria. During the two years of civil war, some 70 thousand people have been killed, and close to one million Syrians have become refugees.
Since the escalation of violence in Syria, Aid to the Church in need donors responded generously with prayers and donations for emergency aid. We thank you for your support and we ask you to continue praying with the Holy Father for peace and reconciliation in Syria.
Yours in Christ,
Father Hugh and EFC
