The Armenian Catholic Archbishop on the Massacre in Aleppo: " We Are Addicted to Daily Horror "
Agenzia Fides ^ | 1/30/13

"The effect of the condition in which we have been living for more than a year is that we are now addicted to horror everyday." This is how the Archbishop of Aleppo of the Armenian Catholics, Boutros Marayati, describes the devastating situation to Fides Agency experienced by the inhabitants of the Syrian metropolis, where yesterday dozens of corpses of young victims were found. "There is always new news of massacres, there is the constant noise of bombing, one lives in a state of tension and fear day and night, there is a struggle to survive in a daily life in which there is not even water to drink and fuel to heat homes.

As we are overwhelmed by all this," the Archbishop explained to Fides, "there is not almost time to become aware of the terrible things in which we are immersed. The massacre at the University a few days ago, where we lost poor Sister Rima, already seems a distant thing."

I think addicted is wrong, I think it should be exposed. We’ve always had daily horror somewhere on the planet since people were here, we just didn’t hear/see it 24/7 like we do now.

What’s wrong with these reports are the clergy reporting “KNOW” who perpetrated these atrocities but are afraid (or the report get edited) to reveal who they are perhaps thinking that would encourage more. I respectfully suggest Your Excellency, Your Eminence, and Your Holyness, that ain’t working. Catholics and Christians are still being martyred.
