* Urgent Prayer – Christians in Syria Kidnapped on Mar 1, 2015

From EWTN Facebook page re: kidnapping on March 1, 2015.

Urgent prayer request from Sister Monica, Daughter of Charity in Paris: “Members of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul in Syria were kidnapped, along with their wives and children. The children were isolated and put into cages. Adults who do not deny their faith will be decapitated, and their children burned alive in the cages. Let us remain fervently united in prayer, and have as our intention the welfare of all brothers and sisters in our Christian faith who are being held hostage. Mother Mary, please console them, and protect them all from harm! O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.” EWTN Prayer Warriors, please share this with everyone you know.
