Destruction Of The Armenian Genocide Memorial Church In Der Zor:
Sunday, September 21, 2014
DER ZOR, Syria (A.W.) —The Islamic State (also known as ISIS) destroyed the Armenian Genocide Memorial Church in Der Zor, news agencies in the Middle East reported.
The reports surfaced as Armenia was celebrating the 23rd anniversary of its independence on Sept. 21.
Armenia’s Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian issued a statement condemning the destruction of the church, which housed the remains of victims of the Armenian Genocide, calling it a “horrible barbarity.”
Nalbandian called upon the international community to cut the Islamic State’s sources of supply, support, and financing, and eradicate what it referred to as a disease that “threatened civilized mankind.”
The church was built in 1989-1990, and consecrated a year later. A genocide memorial and a museum housing remains of the victims of the genocide was also built in the church compound.
Thousands of Armenians from Syria and neighboring countries gathered at the memorial every year on April 24 to commemorate the genocide.
Many refer to Der Zor as the Auschwitz of the Armenian Genocide.
Hundreds of thousands of Armenians perished in Der Zor and the surrounding desert during the genocide. In summer 1916 alone, more than 200,000 Armenians, mostly women and children, were brutally massacred by Ottoman Turkish gendarmes and bands from the region.

THE POPE RECEIVES HIS HOLINESS KAREKIN II AND RECALLS ARMENIA'S 20TH CENTURY MARTYRS
Vatican City, 8 May 2014 (VIS) – “In the person of Your Holiness I extend my respectful and affectionate thoughts to the members of the family of the Catholicate of All Armenians throughout the world. It is a special grace for us to be able to meet in this house, close to the tomb of the Apostle Peter, and to share a moment of fraternity and prayer”.
Pope Francis thus began his greeting to His Holiness Karekin II, Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, in a meeting that took place this morning. He went on to mention how the links between the Armenian Apostolic Church and the Church of Rome have been consolidated during recent years thanks to events such as John Paul II's trip to Armenia in 2001, the presence of the Patriarch in the Vatican on various occasions such as the official visit to Benedict XVI in 2008 and the beginning of Pope Francis' ministry as bishop of Rome in 2013.
“However”, he added, I would like to recall another celebration, rich in meaning, in which Your Holiness took part: the Commemoration of the Witnesses of faith in the twentieth century, which took place within the context of the Great Jubilee of 2000. In truth, the number of disciples who have shed blood for Christ in the tragic events of the last century is certainly higher than that of the martyrs of the first centuries, and the sons of the Armenian nation have a place of honour in this martyrology. The mystery of the Cross, so dear to the memory of your people, represented in the splendid stone crosses that adorn every corner of your land, has been lived by countless sons of yours, directly participating in the chalice of the Passion. Their witness, both tragic and lofty, must not be forgotten”.
“The suffering of Christians during recent decades has also made a unique and inestimable contribution to the cause of unity between Christ's disciples. As in the ancient Church the blood of martyrs became the seed of new Christians, in our days too the blood of many Christians has become the seed of unity. The ecumenism of suffering and martyrdom is a powerful reminder to walk the path of reconciliation between the Churches, decisively and trustfully surrendering ourselves to the action of the Spirit. Let us feel the duty of following this path of fraternity also for the debt of gratitude we have towards the suffering of so many of our brothers, which has become salvific by being united with the passion of Christ”.
In this respect, the Pope thanked Karekin II for his effective support for ecumenical dialogue, and in particular the work of the Joint Commission for theological dialogue between the Catholic Church and the oriental Orthodox Churches, and for the significant theological contribution to the Commission offered by the representatives of the Catholicate of All Armenians.
“Let us pray for each other”, concluded the bishop of Rome. “May the Holy Spirit enlighten us and guide us towards longed-for day in which we may share in the Eucharist. And may the All Holy Mother of God intercede for the Armenian population, now and for ever”.
Following the meeting, Pope Francis and His Holiness Karekin prayed together in the Redemptoris Mater Chapel.

HIS HOLINESS ARAM I, CATHOLICOS OF THE ARMENIAN APOSTOLIC CHURCH OF CILICIA, TO VISIT ROME
Vatican City, 31 May 2014 (VIS) – His Holiness Aram I, Catholicos of the Armenian Apostolic Church of Cilicia, will visit Rome to meet with His Holiness Pope Francis. His Holiness Aram I was elected Catholicos of Cilicia of Antelias in 1995.
The Armenian Church consists of two catholicates and two patriarchates, and around six million faithful. The two catholicates of Etchmiadzin and Antelias are in full communion, but they are independent from an administrative point of view. The Armenian Patriarchate of Jerusalem and the Armenian Patriarchate of Constantinople refer to Etchmiadzin for spiritual questions.
Following Vatican Council II, new relations have developed between the Catholic Church and the Armenian Church. Representatives of the two Catholicates of Etchmiadzin and Antelias are members of the Mixed International Commission for theological dialogue between the Catholic Church and the Oriental Orthodox Churches.
His Holiness Aram I visited the Church of Rome and met with Pope John Paul II from 23 to 26 January 1997. More recently, the Catholicos Aram I visited Pope Benedict XVI in November 2008, and on that occasion they presided over an ecumenical prayer together.
On Thursday 5 June the Catholicos will meet Pope Francis and they will pray together. They will visit the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and various other dicasteries of the Roman Curia. Finally, they will visit the tomb of St. Peter and pray before the statue of St. Gregory the Illuminator, which is located on the north courtyard of the Vatican Basilica.

Audience with the president of Armenia: special attention to Christian communities and other religious minorities, and to refugees in conflict zones
Vatican City, 19 September 2014 (VIS) – This morning the Holy Father Francis received in Audience the President of the Republic of Armenia, His Excellency Mr. Serzh Sargsyan, who subsequently met with His Eminence Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, accompanied by His Excellency Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, Secretary for Relations with States.
During the cordial discussions, satisfaction was expressed for the development and strengthening of bilateral relations, highlighting the special role of Christianity in the history and life of Armenian society.
With regard to the regional political situation, it is hoped that complex and hitherto unresolved issues may be overcome through dialogue between all the interested parties. Furthermore, mention was made of the theme of conflict in the Middle East, and trust was expressed in the common efforts of interested nations and religious communities to achieve a peaceful co-existence of peoples throughout the entire region. Special attention was paid to the situation faced by Christian communities and other religious minorities in the area, and to the humanitarian crisis regarding refugees from the affected zones.
“In the year 1864, Lucifer together with a large number of demons will be unloosed from hell; they will put an end to faith little by little, even in those dedicated to God. They will blind them in such a way, that, unless they are blessed with a special grace, these people will take on the spirit of these angels of hell; several religious institutions will lose all faith and will lose many souls.Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
Several will abandon the faith, and a great number of priests and members of religious orders will break away from the true religion; among these people there will even be bishops. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
