His Holiness Pays His First Apostolic Visit: to Sadad and Homs
On Saturday 7 June 2014, His Holiness Patriarch Mor Ignatius Aphrem II, accompanied by their eminences Mor Justinos Boulos Safar, Patriarchal Vicar in Zahleh and Bekaa, Mor Dionysius Jean Kawak, Director of the Patriarchal Office in Damascus, Mor Timotheos Matta Al-Khoury, Patriarchal Secretary along with some monks, visited the town of Sadad in his first apostolic visit after his enthronement. Mor Selwanos Boutros Al-Nehmeh, Archbishop of Homs, Hama and Environs received His Holiness and the delegation. His Holiness’ first stop was in Hmayrah where he was met with popular greeting.

His Holiness and the delegation then went to Sadad and he put a wreath of roses for the martyrs of Sadad.

His Holiness then celebrated the Divine Liturgy which was attended by many important personalities and local public figures.
In his sermon, His Holiness prayed for the rest of the souls of Sadad’s martyrs who lost their lives for the sake of their faith and defending their country. He said: “may their pure souls intercede for the country; they were good disciples of their good teacher, our Lord Jesus Christ and they loved their neighbor to the point of giving their lives for their beloved country Syria”.

He assured all that the country whose citizens compete in defending it and support its army and leader, will never fall. He also spoke of the role of President Bashar Al-Assad in uniting all around his persona. His Holiness called all citizens of Sadad and Syria in general to remain in their homeland Syria so that the entire world can witness for God’s love to Syria and the attachment of the Syrian citizen to his land of which he is proud. His Holiness reminded the attendees of the great history of Sadad and its role in Syriac history, especially that it gave Patriarch Mor Ignatius Abdallah II Sattouf.

After the Divine Liturgy, His Holiness held an official reception and laid the foundation of a new garden dedicated to the young martyrs Fady and Raneem Sarkis Darrouj.

Afterwards, His Holiness and the accompanying delegation headed to the town of Day’ah where he was met by Sheikh Abdulaziz Trad Al-Melhem and Sheikh Nawwaf Trad Al-Melhem who received him with great respect and honor, known traits of True Arabian culture.
His Holiness also made a stop in the town of Fhayleh where its citizens were blessed by the patriarch while they received him with roses and flowers.
