A number of nuns at the Convent recounted the details of the attack and said that an armed terrorist group fired a shell that penetrated the Convent's wall into one of its rooms but it didn't explode.

...

"We heard an explosion and felt a huge quake so we hurried out to see what happened. We saw smoke and dust coming out from one of the room's windows," said Head of the Convent, Mother Verona al-Nabhan, expressing thanks to God that the shell didn't explode.

“The Virgin Mary stopped the shell from exploding with her own hands,” said Mother Verone, who interpreted the close call as a divine message that “God is watching over sacred places” amid the unprecedented unrest rocking Syria

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
