Strengthen O Lord the work of Your hands(Is 19:25)


« on: July 21, 2014, 05:27:23 PM »

As we start to see the increasing number of news events concerning Christians in Iraq and Syria, we find ourselves very saddened to see how the reality is creating many Christian martyrs, confessors, and diaspora from their regions.  Like Mor Ephrem, I also put a "nūn" (arabic for "N") avatar to commemorate the Christians in Iraq and Syria, called "Nasrani" (Nazarenes, or "Nasara" in Arabic), whose homes were marked with the red letter.

Pray that the suffering may cease, that the enemies of Christ may end their ruthless decrees.

Pray that the Nasranis may be a light to the world, and that through the peace they give, may convert the hearts of the enemy.

Lord, have mercy!

More information on this here:

Quote
Residents say the militants, who declared a caliphate last month headed by Abu Bakr Baghdadi, spray-painted Christian houses with the letter "N" in Arabic, which stands for Nasrani, or Christian, to identify them.

The move and the ensuing migration of Christians have sparked outrage in Lebanon.

While religious figures and Christian politicians issue statements to voice their opposition and rage over events in Mosul, many Lebanese have opted to change their profile pictures on Facebook to a picture of a yellow “N” (in Arabic) with a black background.

(The Daily Star :: Lebanon News :: http://www.dailystar.com.lb)


According to this article, the last Christian families just left Mosul:

may God have mercy.
but i think it's the muslims who call us 'nasrani', we are called 'masihiyeen' in arabic.
at least in egypt it's that way, i think it's the same in other arabic speaking countries.
so maybe you should put a letter 'mim' (m) instead...
