An interview with two priests and three religious sisters who serve in Aleppo, Syria’s largest city explained in details the way the surviving christians in Syria still survive.
The priests and religious affirmed that “Living conditions are obviously very hard and tough,”.
“Families live on their water reserves, for there’s not much left at their disposal. No power. Generators were installed, and citizens could buy amperes for one or two hours a day. Shops are open, so are markets; public transportation is functional. Life goes on.” their added.
“Those who stayed – a majority of Catholics – carry on living, despite everything, in an amazing spirit of faith and hope. They however are confronted with a dilemma, facing the danger; some fear the coming of Daesh (ISIS) and consider fleeing away. Others are determined to stay, no matter what.”
The Priests and religious sisters plead with everyone to always remember this true soldiers of Christ in our prayers.
