Fr. Ibrahim Alsabagh, OFM has exercised his ministry as parish priest and superior of the Franciscan community in Aleppo, Syria. He is also the author of the book Letters from Aleppo that gathers stories about war and faith, lived in first-person.
This exemplary religious who, despite persecution and fear, has not abandoned his flock, tells us about the human and divine experience lived in the middle of this “happy war,” full of suffering, but also of grace. He will help us understand the difficult moments the city of Aleppo has gone through as well as its actual resurrection, thanks to the constant help from the Church and the strong faith of its people.
His testimony makes us feel proud of our Christian brothers and sisters.
