Discalced Carmelite of Aleppo

“Help us! We are being bombed, but we will not abandon the people who are suffering”. With this striking title, the English edition of ZENIT on 4th August gave us an interview with our Discalced Carmelite Nuns in Aleppo.

Six nuns reside in the monastery, two French and four Syrian, who are victims and witnesses to a most difficult situation of war: to confused and contradictory news is added the reality of the suffering and death of thousands of innocent civilians.

“How can we abandon people who are suffering?” This moving comment explains the commitment of the nuns to continue praying for the end of the war. They also ask us for our prayers and concrete help that the General Curia will seek to provide and channel.
