A message from the Maronite Archbishop of Damascus is worth pondering. You can read it here on Sr. Anne Flanagan’s blog.
It’s interesting to note the response of the Christians in Syria. They are busy healing and comforting, and their shepherd does not advocate violence in response to violence. In this he is practicing what Msgr. Charles Pope said in his blog for Sunday — break the cycle of violence, depriving Satan of two victories.
