Patriarch Gregorios: LIght a Candle of Peace for Syria

The Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarch Gregorios III has launched an initiative entitled, Light a Candle for Hope and Peace in Syria. He has appealed to all the faithful of the Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarchate and all believers throughout the world, including social institutions and humanitarian associations, to light each evening a candle in their homes and offices, and say a prayer for the peace of Syria and the region.
Pray for the peace of Syria: A suggested prayer for Syria

Lord Jesus Christ, who appeared to Paul your apostle in the sky over Damascus and appeared to Ananias in his house,

Just as you gave them your love, power and peace, so we ask you, at their intercession, to save Syria from every evil.

We beseech you, through the intercession of your Mother, Mary ever-Virgin, to whom you never refused grace, to give us and your brothers and sisters in Syria the ability to help bring peace to this land which you made the starting point for your light and love to the whole world.

May it become once more a land of peace, love, fellowship and stability, to be a beacon to the entire world. Amen.
