Carmelite sisters in Aleppo

On 22nd October, a distressing picture spread through social and communication media: a missile had fallen into the kitchen garden of the Discalced Carmelites of Aleppo in Syria, although it did not explode, thanks be to God.

When the Fr. General contacted Mother Anne-Françoise, she communicated that the sisters were absolutely fine despite the impression given and that the missile had not caused any material damage. The Mother Superior promised to send updates, which we will relay through this channel and our own social networks. She also said that they had felt themselves to be protected by St. John Paul II, whose feast day was celebrated that very day.

We will continue to pray for our sisters in Aleppo and for peace in Syria.
