Chers amis.
A la suite d’une première vague d’inondations et, ici, des suites d’une canicule qui a mis nos agriculteurs en grandes difficultés, les pluies diluviènnes ont repris au Kerala, nous annonce un post de notre frère et ami Mor Meletius ainsi que cet article de l’OCP.
Les Pères de l’Eglise au Kerala se sont unis pour appeler à la prière et à la solidarité.
Nous aussi reprenons nos prières pour accompagner dans cette épreuve les fils et filles de l’Inde du Sud (Kerala / Malankar / Malabare) et appeler sur ses fils et filles les bénédictions du Très Haut.
Merci pour vos prières et votre amour compatissant.
Prions pour que l’unanimité du Témoignage Chrétien à l’intérieur des juridictions écclésiales notre Tradition Syriaque s’affermisse afin que des pluies de grâces inondent la Sainte Eglise afin que se manifeste la splendeur à travers un élan missionnaire renouvellé!
Que la Mère de Miséricorde étende sa protection sur ses fils et filles du Kerala, de France, d’Afrique, du Brésil et du Pakistan où nous sommes impantés!
Aloho m’barekh!
