Metropolitan Paul (Yazigi), Metropolitan of the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese Of Aleppo, and the brother of His Beatitude, as well as Mar Gregorios Yohanna Ibrahim of the Syriac Archdiocese of Aleppo, were both abducted by terrorists in a suburb of Aleppo as they  were returning from Antioch (Antakya, Turkey) to Aleppo.

Please pray for these Christian bishops of Syria. Lord have mercy
Your brother in Christ ,

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Lord, have mercy upon Your servants!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I checked Google and there are no new stories about them for the past while.

That would be very disheartening if true. If anyone finds any source regarding the current status of these two Bishops please keep us posted on the other thread we have about then.

Some articles claimed that they had been taken to Turkey, but the Turks seem to deny it. As for now, I don't think anybody really knows where they are, if they are even still alive.

Hopefully they are still alive.  If not, they are alive in the Hands of God.  Through the intercessions of Hieromartyr Sadoc (Sadoth) the Bishop of Persia and the Theotokos, LORD have mercy on them.
