Aleppo’s bishops: our suffering is not in vain when united to Christ’s Passion

May 04, 2016

In a joint statement, Aleppo’s Latin-rite and Eastern-rite ordinaries deplored renewed violence in Syria’s city.

Citing the “cry of blood of children and martyrs” and “the tears of the bereaved mothers,” the bishops appealed to the “consciences of those who project and carry out this war” to stop the fighting, according to a Fides report.

“We are children of the Resurrection, of hope, and we firmly believe that this suffering will not be in vain,” they added, as called upon the faithful to unite their suffering to Christ’s Passion.”

Recalling the message of Our Lady of Fatima, the bishops also recommended consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the recitation of the Rosary.
