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

Because your adversary is the devil

based to  holy words which said by our  savior the Lord Jesus christ, it is normal to be one of many persecuted persons, in this world by a lot of groups which called themself churches, have been established a new ideology,   in the contrast of the Lord teach, and against the teach of the fathers of the church, while the most of them were martyrs,
nothing new for the conception of the persecution in our christian life, because our lord has declared that will be happen against his servants and his people which is the path of the holiness
(John 15:20)Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
(Matthew 5:11) Blessed are ye, when [men] shall revile you, and persecute [you], and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake."
so, my dears in christ, do not be sad nor angry, you are in the way of the heavenly kingdom,
but you have to be angry from those who teach Such as wolves.
while Jesus confirm that our way not easy:
"Luke 10:3Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves".
 (Acts 20:29) For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous WOLVES enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
but my dears in christ remember always our Lord said to his church:
God said: "For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you, "Fear not, I will help you" (Isaiah 41 : 13)
pray to the lord all the day asking him to protect you from devil
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour" (1Peter 5:8)
