Week of spiritual jihad for reconciliation: PRESS RELEASE 01/10/2011

 

Press release in conclusion of the 1 october 2010 about the

Week of spiritual jihad, through fasting, prayer

and sakina (God-inspired peace of the soul)

for reconciliation between the children of Mother Syria

at the monastery of Mar Musa al-Habashi

 

Monks and nuns of the monastery dedicated themselves, with friends and a number of visitors from the vast Syrian mosaic, to fast and prayer. We met daily in the church to read the Gospel, recite the Quran and meditate on a selection of texts about non-violent activism for reform, through forgiveness, through a dialogue based on brotherly reciprocal listening, through the acceptance of difference without conditions. A large number of friends (people and organizations) from around the world joined us in spirit, which made us feel deeply in communion and unity before God.

Llamada a una semana de “jihad” espiritual, mediante el ayuno, la oración y la sakina (paz del alma inspirada por Dios), a favor de la reconciliación entre los hijos de Siria nuestra madre, en el monasterio de Der Mar Musa el Habashi. Montaña de Nebek, del Viernes 23 al viernes 30 de septiembre.

El Papa ha dicho a propósito de la situación en Siria, el pasado 7 de Agosto: “Sigo con una viva preocupación los dramáticos y crecientes episodios de violencia en Siria, que han provocado numerosas víctimas y grandes sufrimientos. Invito a los fideles católicos a rezar, para que el esfuerzo por la reconciliación prevalezca sobre la división y el rencor. Renuevo además, una llamada urgente a las autoridades y a la población siria,para que se restablezca lo más rápido posible la coexistencia pacífica y que se responda de manera adecuada a las aspiraciones legítimas de los ciudadanos, en el respecto de su dignidad y por el bien de la estabilidad en la región”

 

La Comunidad de Mar Musa, en las montañas de Nebek, tiene la intención de consagrar ocho días de ayuno, de oración y de sakina, para suplicar al Dios Altísimo, Padre de misericordias, en favor de la reconciliación entre los ciudadanos sobre la base de una elección común por la no violencia; como único método que pueda garantizar un reforma duradera, sin degenerar hacia una guerra civil y el círculo vicioso de la venganza.

at the monastery of Mar Musa al-Habashi, in the mountain of Nebek

from Friday 23d to Friday 30th September 2011

 


The Pope said about the situation in Syria on Sunday, 7 August 2011: "I follow with great concern the dramatic and increasing episodes of violence in Syria, which caused many casualties and great suffering. I invite the Catholic faithful to pray, for the efforts for reconciliation to prevail on division and resentment. Moreover, I insistently ask the authorities and the Syrian people to restore as quickly as possible peaceful coexistence, and to respond adequately to the legitimate aspirations of the citizens while respecting their dignity, for the sake of stability in the region. "

 

The Community of Deir Mar Musa al-Habashi in the mountain of Nebek wishes to dedicate eight days to fasting, prayer and sakina for imploring of God Almighty, Father of All Mercy, reconciliation between citizens, on the basis of a common option for non-violence as the only method able to ensure sustainable reform and to avoid the slide into civil war and the vicious circle of revenge.
