Letter to the Christians in Syria

My sons and my brothers in Christ

I type to you today  not from my intellectual methods and I do not try to put an opinion, but reminding you about the teachings of the Holy Fathers of the Church that prompted countless of martyrs.

You all know who is St. John Chrysostom !
He Is the founder and writer of the Divine Liturgy, which you pray it every Sunday at your blessed Churches.

he is the  father of Church of Antioch , which you belong  it, He who interpreted of the Epistles of Paul the Apostle

He is the Saint whose called for  the rights of the poor and defended the oppressed, he was whose faced of the king and the kings, he dropped the kingdoms for the rights of  the poor and needy.

Do you remember that of St. John Chrysostom prevent the Queen, usurped the right of the widows and fatal the poor , from entering the church !?

The  great Saint Chrysostom, Patriarch of Antioch, decided to deterred the Queen through the law of church,
He issued a decision against her by preventing her from entering the church.

People stood up and supported the saint and closed the doors of the church at the face of large Queen.

Awake, O Christian take part with your brothers in the nation to achieve justice, not to support the tyrant Who claims to divinity and forcing people to worship his image, this is who killed and ate the poor widows and poor money.

Do not allow to be dragged behind idolatry, not accustomed to the time of Roman Emperors, who had forced the people to worship Caesar.

We do not worship except God.

God keep you, Keep the faith, as the Savior said: Whoever has faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains.

Serve right to right will set you free
