The clergy and the Orthodox believers on Sunday, when they celebrate the birthday of the Holy Virgin Mary, are praying for peace in Syria, Egypt and in other parts of the Middle East, following an appeal made by Patriarch Daniel.
‘Let’s use this time of celebration, occasioned by the birthday of the Holy Virgin Mary, to pray more for peace in this world, especially in Syria, Egypt and in other parts of the Middle East, where many Christians are victims to persecution and violence. Let’s pray for peace to become the light to guide the life of all people, regardless of their religion and culture’ – said the Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox Church (BOR) in his appeal to believers.
He urged ‘all hierarchs, priests, nuns and believers to multiply their prayers for peace’.(Agenţia Naţională de Presă AGERPRES)
