Subject: Destruction of St. Mary's Monastery Church in Dair Al-Zor, Syria

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

Peace and greetings to you in Christ our Lord.

I never had in mind that one day that I will write this email to you and to many other friends. The attached photo is my church in Dair Al-Zor, Syria. This is St. Mary's Syrian Orthodox Church in Dair Al-Zor, which is located on the Euphrates River. It was destroyed by dynamites on Saturday, 27 October 2012. I heard in the news that there was an explosion near the church, but I never had an idea how much damage was done to it? I just saw this picture published on Facebook,and wanted to share it with you asking your prayers for peace in Syria.

It was early this summer when our Christian community left Dair Al-Zor, because of the heavy fighting in their town. Many of them were displaced in Hassake, where is the center of the Archdiocese. The community in Dair Al-Zor worked hard for ten years (1994-2004) to build a new church and Al-wahda Private School. The criminals destroyed all this wonderful work in less than one minute. This is the fruit of the Arab/Islamic Spring, which many people still believe in it.

Your prayers, good will and action are kindly asked to stop destroying God's creation.

Sincerely yours,

Archbishop Eustathius Matta Roham
Syrian Orthodox Archdiocese of Jazirah & Euphrates
