SYRIA: MGR AUDO (BISHOP OF ALEPPO), "CHRISTMAS OF INTEGRATION FOR IRAQI REFUGEES" (2)

"Christmas is the feast of children and in those days we are organising, both in Damascus and in Aleppo, some celebrations with Santa Claus who is bringing them presents, toys and clothes in particular," adds the Chaldean priest." "This Christmas will be characterised by the peaceful living together that here in Syria is made easier for the mutual respect Muslims and Christians are showing to one another. This country sets an example of tolerance and cohabitation between the two faiths. The pope’s next visit to the Holy Land will contribute to fostering this cohabitation. We try our best to make our Church open and fraternal." Of the 1.5 million Iraqi refugees who are currently in Syria, 40,000 are Christians, 15,000 of them live in Damascus and 2,000 in Aleppo. ” ” ” ” ” “
