Behold me, my beloved Jesus, 
Weighed down under the burden of my trials and sufferings,   
I cast myself at Your feet,   
That You may renew my strength and my courage
. Amen

“Christians are not interested in the war and do not have an organization to defend themselves. So, because of the war there is a great deal of emigration. Many young people leave Syria because of the danger they live in and because Syria does not offer enough work to make a living today.”
