Prayers for the “Terre Sainte” College of the Franciscan friars in Aleppo

At about six o’clock (May 21st), a missile hit the College “Terre Sainte” of the Franciscan friars in Aleppo. This friary is so dear and loved to many people of the city, especially to the families who come here every day to take a breath and to recover the energies that the ongoing war has worn.

An elderly and infirm woman was killed and two other seriously injured. Panic and terror struck the other twenty women who had been hosted in the convent after their retirement home was bombed a year ago. Now we do not know how or where to accommodate them. Unfortunately, in Aleppo “there is no longer a quiet place and 100% safe place”.

May our Lord have mercy on us and bless us with His Peace. Father Eduardo and I are praying for the deceased and for all the innocent people who are victims of this hateful conflict in Syria. We would like you to join in our prayer for everybody and for all this pain and sufferings to end, so that, instead of hatred, Peace and Love may reign!
