Living Faith
Posted: 21 May 2010

The group was inspired by its visits to the shrines of Our Lady in Harissa and Matara, but to celebrate Mass in the Church of St. Paul on the Wall in Damascus brought the group in living contact with the “Apostle of the Gentiles.”

Best of all, to join Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarch Gregory III’s outdoor celebration of a solemn Divine Liturgy on Thomas Sunday (the Sunday after Easter) at an ancient mountaintop church dedicated to the saint and, following, to meet with hundreds of men, women and children present were beautiful and unforgettable experiences of the living faith of Christians in Syria today.
