It’s been almost 5 years since Metropolitan Paul (Yazigi) has been kidnapped in the province of Aleppo, Syria, together with the Syriac Orthodox archbishop, Mor Gregorios Yohanna Ibrahim.
Here you can listen to an audio recording of Metropolitan Paul singing a hymn of the Bridegroom Matins: “I see Thy bridal chamber all adorned, O my Saviour, but I have no wedding garment so that I may enter in. Make bright the vesture of my soul, O Giver of light, and save me.”
Every step towards Easter became tangible. Brightly illuminated by Church singing is the path that brings us closer to the Holy Feast of Resurrection and only by living a life in Christ will our wedding garment shine bright.
Let us pray for peace and release of the kidnapped bishops in Aleppo.
