I think I have made my position regarding the Syrian crisis rather clear, and I have discussed the war with others (some who agree with me, others who don't) on the private fora. While we may not all unanimously agree on which side to support, I think we can all agree that the Christians of Syria have been some of the most unfortunate victims in this brutal conflict and that they are in desperate need of our prayers. While we abide in the comfort of our homes our brothers and sisters abroad are slaughtered, oppressed, and live in constant fear for their lives. Please pray for the Christians of Syria and spread the word regarding their plight to others. Taking a mere moment of your time to pray for them may make a world of difference.

Lord, have mercy on the Christians of Syria. Clothe the naked among them, grant shelter to their homeless, quench their thirst, satiate their hunger, console their grief, confirm their faith, grant them courage in the face of the adversary, and victory over their enemies. May the Church of Antioch become a beacon of light to all the servants of Christ, serving as a reminder that we are not to love the world or anything that is in it, for the world and all its vain desires shall pass away. Grant this through the prayers of the Theotokos, Sts. Peter and Paul, and all of the new martyrs of Syria.
Amen.

And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that for a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught many people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. -Acts 11:26

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

Lord, have mercy upon all those involved.  Most Holy Theotokos, pray to your Son that these poor souls will be comforted.

This movie is spiritual and seems to have a prayer in it. It goes along well with what is happening in Syria. Thank you for caring.

Thank you for sharing, Rakovsky. FTR, this video is about Egypt, but I see your point about how it applies to Syria.

Here's what I considered to be a very touching video about Syria:

Thank, although for some reason I am having trouble getting it to work on my laptop. I updated Firefox and Flash, but for some reason I am having trouble with some Youtube videos.

Thank you all for your prayers and contributions to this forum. This thread has over 150 views, I hope that translates into 150 prayers for these martyrs, confessors, and passion-bearers of Christ.
