printable version

His Beatitude Ignace Yousif III Younan, Syriac Catholic patriarch of Antioch, attended this evening prayer sponsored by the Community of Sant'Egidio to remind the Christians killed in Baghdad in the attack on the Cathedral.

In the Basilica of San Bartolomeo on the Isola Tiberina that Pope John Paul II wanted to become the shrine of the martyrs of the '900, thronged by about one thousand faithfuls, the president of the Community, Marco Impagliazzo, addressed a brief greeting to the patriarch, stressing that "the Community of Sant'Egidio wanted strongly this meeting to remind our fellow Christians who were doing nothing wrong, but praying, working honestly. "

The patriarch, for his part, thanked the Community. "We need the Lord and solidarity", he said. "Many people - he added - are tempted to leave the country. The government provide security to the Christian minority, true citizens and authors and Mesopotamian civilization. We keep relying on the support - he concluded - of the Community of Sant'Egidio cause you are workers for peace and justice".
