The Community of Sant'Egidio continues to pray for the release of two bishops from Aleppo, Mar Gregorios Yohanna Ibrahim, the Syriac-Orthodox Archbishop and Mgr. Paul Yazigi, the Greek-Orthodox Metropolitan, kidnapped on 22 April in Syria.

The Community at Antwerpen met at St. Charles Borromeo’s Church on 7 June for an ecumenical prayer in which Mgr Peckstadt Athenagoras took part. Athenagoras is bishop of Sinope, auxiliary bishop of the Metropolitan of Belgium in Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.

In his homily, the Metropolitan insisted on the value of peace, dialogue and living together, and gave a moving testimony about his personal friendship with the kidnapped bishops.
