Archbishop of Aleppo, Syria: 'My People Are Suffering' 70-Year-Old Prelate Takes Up His Cross Again
Rome, (Zenit.org) Mark Riedemann. “Many Muslims are now shy to declare themselves Muslim. Several Muslim told me: ‘I am ashamed—I do not understand that Islam is like that.’ So I think it is the time for a true dialogue. I think it is the day of the Lord perhaps. I have to take my Cross in my hand, even though I'm 70, to begin my mission again—and I feel myself a man of 45."
