The city of Aleppo received a special visit: a statue of Our Lady of Fatima, which brought consolation and joy to Christians who are still suffering the consequences of the war in Syria.
A great sign of hope comes from Aleppo, a city that is still suffering the consequences of the civil war in Syria. The city was consecrated to Our Lady of Fatima on May 13, while Pope Francis presided over the celebration of the centenary of Marian apparitions in Portugal.
The act of consecration took place during a Mass presided by the pastor of Aleppo, Father Ibrahim Alsabagh. Friar Father Alsabagh said that the image of Our Lady has brought consolation to him and to the whole city!
The Maronite Archbishop of Aleppo also participated in the celebrations, followed by a great procession that held the statue of Mary through the city.
