I have attached above the most recent very moving letter from Archbishop Samir Nassar - Archbishop of Damascus.He writes as Syria plunges into the third anniversary of a crisis that tears the country apart since March 15th 2011. All the peoples of Syria are living a daily Calvary and dear Archbishop Samir speaks on all their behalf ..so humbly, poetically, mercifully and so full of love.The plight of the Christians in Syria is particularly terrifying and their suffering is beyond what any of us can comprehend unless we have ourselves lived through constant war.The Archbishop recently sent a brief email imploring me to pray for the Christians in Iraq whose plight is far worse than those in Syria. He said this when he himself is suffering so much.How the Christians in the Middle East appreciate our solidarity in prayer - to know that they are not alone.Aid to the Church in Need is one Charity who ensures Aid arrived to those in most need in both Syria and Iraq, Remember this Charity when you are thinking of giving.Please share this Letter with those in your Parish who will pray and perhaps give a copy to your Parish Priest.It is important for people to know so that they can pray.Let us implore God's Mercy over this Holy Week and Easter Octave.Crucified Lord Jesus have mercy upon us and upon all Nations - especially Syria and Iraq who know no peace.In union of prayersAntonia
