Father in heaven purify them.

May they keep courage after the example of Our Lord.

May Mary watch after her sons.

May the angels comfort them.

Just wanted to share a particular prayer request as we celebrate Holy week. Antiochian Orthodox people are particularly hurting with the actions of what is thought o be a foreign rebel group in Syria, kidnapping two sheppards of the Orthodox in Syria and Southern Turkey. The jurisdiction includes the historical city of Antioch itself, as well as Aleppo and Alexandretta and all the way to the borders of Capadocia. The Antiochian Orthodox bishop who was kidnapped is also the sibling of the Patriarch of Antioch, So it is not a surprise that Antochians feel they are being targetted by a new wave of persecution, given the Ottoman efforts at the turn of the 20th century to throw the Greeks, and the Assyrians (syriacs) out of the region. the fact that the kidnappers seem to be Chechens, is not reassuring either.

I wanted to share the link requesting prayer. Thank you all.
