Martyrdom of Fr. Francois Murad …

Here is another message from Antonia about the tragic situation in Syria and our lack of response …

Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus

indexIt is with great prayer and thought that I have decided to send out this email with a link of the graphic martyrdom of Fr. Francois Murad a 49 year old priest beheaded in Syria in the past weeks.

Two other Catholic Priests have also been murdered along with countless thousands of others…and the killing just continues. May they rest in peace and rise in glory…

We in the Church here in the Uk need a massive WAKE UP CALL as to what is really happening with the persecuted Church in so many countries around the world ….we are too complacent..

Syria and Nigeria are perhaps living the greatest Calvary as I speak.

It is entirely up to you whether you view this content sent to me by a priest late last night.

I made the decision to do so… and I am forever changed by it.

We need to increase our prayers for Syria and we need to plead and deeply pray.

This is the time for Serious Intercessory Prayer and Penance for the salvation of souls.

What is at stake for many is Eternal Life … the battle of Our Lady, the Woman clothed with the Sun and the red dragon is raging in the heavens and on earth – Rev 12..

The powerful intercession of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary with Merciful Jesus is assured … Heaven is with us…

The time of persecution all over the world is nigh..and the Middle Eastern Christians are showing us and witnessing to us ..the high privilege of being disciples of Christ.

The sheer helpless ness and powerlessness of the priests and all the others in the face of their fate is visible for all to see…

The helplessness in the email below from Archbishop of Damascus is also evident..

The only recourse now is to the Powerful Intercession of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary … Governments… UN ..all  powerless in the face of this evil.

How we need to pray…and plead for the conversion of the hearts and minds of the men and women of violence all over the world.

I invite you to pray and to plead the Precious Blood of Jesus over all.

Yours in the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary



The priest Archbishop Nassar spoke of was 49 years old..Fr. Francoise  Murad..he was beheaded by the jihadist al Nursa Rebels….on June 23 rd 2013
It was horrific…they videoed it …and I decided to watch part of it…it was too much to watch all. He is truly a martyr..he was bound, helpless with no advocat..a line of other men to be beheaded were beside him. He was the first one as he was a Catholic Priest. He was a true lamb just slaughtered with the jihadist mob screaming hell all around him.
In the week running up to his death he knew this might happen….he gave his life and martyrdom for the peace of Syria…
O Lord have Mercy
And I am now a witness to this martyrdom and cannot remain silent…

Dear Antonia
Sorry for your problems..take care..we need you..
Every day people dies ..non stop war for the third year..
It is too difficult..The third priest killed was Father François MRAD
3 days ago, north of Syria..killed in his convent..
A bomb killed 5 young people next door yesterday..
Nothing to do..
Lord have mercy..
Sacred Heart of Mary give us peace..

Act of Consecration of Syria to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart…

This is a message sent by Antonia Moffat, who has been in touch with the Archbishop of Damascus, in Syria, where Christians are suffering so much:

Mgr-samir-nassarDear Friends of Our Blessed Mother and Merciful Jesus,

This is a very serious email I am sending you but also one which
carries great HOPE!

The situation in Syria, the Middle East and in many parts of the World
is deteriorating. Humanly speaking we in many of the trouble spots of
the world we are in a ‘hopeless situation’. The situation of unbelief
in Western Europe has had catastrophic Consequences and continues to
do so. Marriage and Family the very foundation of the Family is under
persistent and severe attack. Millions of unborn babies continue to be
slaughter upon the altars of godlessness, selfishness and ignorance.
Our beloved Church is under attacked, our clergy and Bishops and lay
faithful too who try to remain faithful to Christ and the truths he

Our Lady’s tears around the world are profuse and the suffering of her
sorrowful and immaculate Heart amidst her suffering sons and daughters
is beyond what any of us can fathom. The peoples in Syria are bleeding
daily in anguish of spirit, heart, mind, and body.

Archbishop Samir Nassar, the Archbishop of Damascus has just sent me
the following confirmation re Renewal of his Act of Consecration of
Syria to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart…

Merci chere Antonia de votre fidélité et soutien à nos petites
communautés en difficulté. La consécration au Coeur Immaculé de Marie
sera renouvelée le 26 Mai 2013 à Damas à 18h, les photos et la prière
sont imprimées à 2000 exemplaires. +Samir NASSAR

Thank you dear Antonia for your fidelity and support of our small
communities in difficulty. The Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of
Mary will be renewed on May 26th 2013 in Damascus at 6pm. Pictures and
2000 of the prayer have been printed. +Archbishop Samir Nassar

I am asking you as last time to mobilize an enormous Mountain of
Prayer around the World in support of Archbishop Samir as he prepares
to renew the Act of Consecration Syria to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
which he first carried out in his Cathedral on August 15th 2012 -Feast
of the Assumption.
