Syria: "Our Lady of Sorrows, Consoler of the Syrian people" continues its peregrination
Father Charbel Eid Rizkallah of the mission of the Lebanese Maronite Order is set to accompany the Icon of Our Lady of Sorrows, Consoler of the Syrians. The Holy Father gave his blessing to the prayer campaign for Syrian Christians "Console my people", promoted by the Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) Pontifical Foundation as well as the Catholic and Orthodox Churches of Syria. This campaign seeks to perpetuate the memory of the victims of the war in Syria and to provide spiritual support to the families of the deceased.
This icon was written by a Greek Orthodox priest in Homs (Syria) on the initiative of the ACN foundation. A pilgrimage of the icon began after the blessing on 15th of September 2019 by Pope Francis in the Vatican, and will follow a tight schedule of presentations across Syria until 31st of May.
