Vigil for Syria

16 of the League's members are in Brugge for our annual pilgrimage for the Church's unity.

After a short talk on the Church in Syria from Fr John Salter, a priest of the Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarchate of Antioch, at 7-15 pm, we gathered before the Beguinage monastery's icon of the Mother of God and offered the Akathist Hymn in union with the Eastern Christians of the Middle East and also with the Holy Father's vigil of prayer and fasting tonight for Syria and the spirit of Christ's peace in the world.

Lord of the Universe, remember in Your Kingdom that part of Your universe which is beloved Syria.
