Syrian terrorists have beheaded a Catholic priest who they accused of collaborating with the Assad regime. Those accusations have not yet been verified. Father Francois was summarily executed and the Vatican has confirmed the martyrdom.
VATICAN CITY (Catholic Online) - The Vatican is confirming the death by beheading of Franciscan Father, Francois Murad, who was martyred by Syrian jihadists on June 23.
Below is the news release from the Vatican, via news.va.
On Sunday, June 23 the Syrian priest François Murad was killed in Gassanieh, in northern Syria, in the convent of the Custody of the Holy Land where he had taken refuge. This is confirmed by a statement of the Custos of the Holy Land sent to Fides Agency. The circumstances of the death are not fully understood. According to local sources, the monastery where Fr. Murad was staying was attacked by militants linked to the jihadi group Jabhat al-Nusra.
Father François, 49, had taken the first steps in the religious life with the Franciscan Friars of the Custody of the Holy Land, and with them he continued to share close bonds of spiritual friendship. After being ordained a priest he had started the construction of a coenobitic monastery dedicated to St. Simon Stylites in the village of Gassanieh.After the start of the Civil War, the monastery of St. Simon had been bombed and Fr. Murad had moved to the convent of the Custody for safety reasons and to give support to the remaining few, along with another religious and nuns of the Rosary.

View at your own risk ... Fr. Murad is only the latest victim. There are hundreds of christian men, women and children who have been slaughtered in Syria.
Send this to John McCain.
The U.S. Government plans on importing thousands more Muslims from the Mideast!
These are such nice people. S/off. They are Odumbo's friends. It looked like a target rich environment to me. Too bad there wasn't a nice 155MM cannon near at the time.

Beheadings of Catholics.....White House approved. Heck Sharia White House approved.
& most Catholics voted for Obama
Without a doubt, that is the grisliest sight I’ve ever witnessed. The savage beheading took place in front of kids, who appeared to be enjoying the spectacle. The beheaders have earned a confirmed seat on Charon’s boat. The victims are on their way to heaven, having been martyred for their faith.
Yes, I have been saying all along that I am far less worried by Mexican “illegals” than I am by the Muslim “legals” that Obama has been bringing here, even taking out of the Latin American quota to bring them in (most Latin Americans don’t know this).
Illegals will go away, either when the economic demand dries up or when their own economy improves. Legally imported, completely non-vetted and then government-subsidized Muslims will not.
Is the NSA recording all the video downloads and viewings?
Are they going to watch each one?
Actually, most Catholics who go to Mass regularly didn’t vote for him. The problem is that when surveys ask people of traditionally Catholic descent for their religious identity, they will say “Catholic” even if they haven’t set foot in a church since their baptism.
I think the clergy was not good about speaking out and the Catholic turnout and vote would have been better if they had, but don’t blame Catholics for electing Obama. We’re not the majority here.
So what is the Pope doing about this atrosity? He should go the UN and tell the world how blood thirsty Islamic Jihadists are a threat to humanity world wide.
Every time someone tries to tell me that islam is a religion of peace
Atilla the Hun was (in)famous for beheading the Archbishop of Reims in his Cathedral.
Re: Atilla. I thought civilization was supposed to have advanced since those atrocities took place...
>Actually, most Catholics who go to Mass regularly didnt vote for him.<
Most definitely not true — you are very misinformed.
We have members on the church staff who drive around with Obama/Biden stickers on their cars and they are not black.
I personally know of a well-to-do lawyer and his wife who voted for Obama and they attend Mass every Sunday.
Heck, how many spectators were recording the "event" with their cell phones?
My Catholic siblings all voted for Obama.
Mexico isn't much different...
The bodies of seven men arranged in chairs are pictured in Uruapan, in the Mexican state of Michoacan, March 23, 2013.
In fact, I think more people have been beheaded in Mexico, than Afghanistan in the past several years.
Good little Muzzie boys in well heeled neighborhoods usually have a poster of their favorite nigh naked Western babe, their favorite Mooze Lame Western sports star, and now they can have a poster of their favorite Catholic with his head sitting on his back and the faithful cheering his executioner.
But, some people are still so foolish that they believe you can talk with mad dogs like these rather than killing them and destroying the source of the infection.
I suppose this could morph into a prayer thread...as it should! For the martyr Francois the Priest:
O God of all spirits and of every flesh, Who did trod down death and overcome the devil, bestowing life on this Your world, to the soul of this Your servant the priest Francois, departed this life, do You Yourself, O Lord, give rest in a place of light, in a place of green pasture, in a place of refreshment, from where pain and sorrow and mourning have fled away. Every sin by him committed in thought, word, or deed, do You as our Good and Loving God forgive; seeing that there is no man who shall live and sin not, for You alone are without sin. Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your Law is truth; for You are the Resurrection, the Life, and the Repose of Your servant the priest Francois, departed this life, O Christ our God; and to You do we send up glory, with Your Eternal Father and Your All-Holy, Good and Life-creating Spirit; both now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.
I encourage all of you to put aside your rage and tomorrow and now pray for this new martyr.
The Mexican gangs actually started doing this after being inspired by the Islamic terrorists. They found that terror worked.
And since the US has never responded to the Muslims as it should have (extermination),Mexican thugs took their cue from us and from the painful weakness of Mexico as a state- and except for a few brave women and some men - all of them dead now - Mexico unofficially gave up.
But that’s cool. We’re giving up now too.
As they capture their barbarism on video devices invented by Westerners, not by their backward “culture.”
“Heck, how many spectators were recording the “event” with their cell phones?”
As many as in London? It’s a sick world.
He doesn’t care.
He knows what is going on, he isn’t stupid, he has intelligence sources that tell him they are killing Christians. Obviously he doesn’t care.
Neither does the Muslim in the White House.
Our wonderful neighbors in Mexico?...Ya want to see real brutal off the scale horrific?
Let me know, I’ll send ya the links..
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.
I look forward to the day every damn one of these MF’ers are thrown into the Lake of Fire for eternity. Including the ones in the WH.
Don’t look forward to that. We want EVEN THEM to be saved. There’s nothing wrong with wanting them to meet the justice they deserve, however.
I was going to comment on that fact. Were they going to pass the video along to their families and friends? What a bunch of sickos.
I just shared this on FB, here is my post.
This disturbs me greatly even though I am not a Catholic, we are Christians thus believers in Christ Jesus as our Savior. 0bama is supporting these animals that are killing and beheading Christians. This priest was beheaded on June 23rd the Syrian priest François Murad was killed in Gassanieh, in northern Syria, in the convent of the Custody of the Holy Land where he had taken refuge.
We are in a battle here for the survival of our Republic and it looks like this administration has drawn us in to a battle where we do not belong. Like Sarah Palin said, LET ALLAH SORT THEM OUT!
I cannot watch the video but glad it’s available.
We are toast.
What about the 95 percent of black Protestants who voted for Obama. Work on them, please.
That’s a huge number!
I started to watch the video but then decided not to. You want people to be free in places like Syria, Iraq, and Egypt, but then you see a type of human animal that almost begs for a dictator
Thank you for the prayer. Amen
The real bottom line is that there were thirteen million fewer people who voted Republican in the 2012 election than voted Republican in the 2008 election. They just stayed home and watched Romney lose by around three million votes. Without a doubt it's the people who voted for McCain in 2008 but who stayed home in 2012 that are responsible for Barry still being in office.
The only large block of folks that can be clearly identified by their religion who made a difference in 2012 is the sixteen million plus mostly "Evangelical", black folks. They voted by 95% or more for King Barry even though they claim to be solid non-Catholic Christians who are against abortion and very much against queers marrying one another or being recognized as anything but perverts.
How are conservatives where you are reaching out to those non-Catholic Christian black folks? Are there some forums where a lot of black folks participate where they can be slammed and slandered when some Muzzie beheads a Catholic priest? Or is there an outreach program that goes right to their churches and puts little comic books under the windshield wipers of the cars in the church parking lot?
Lord, have mercy on the souls of these martyrs.
What a sickening example of ruthless, vicious, brutal, savage, frenzied, monstrous, murderous, maniacal butchery. Obviously another frightening facet of Satan's culture of death.
