Pray for the safe release of Fr. Paulo Dall’Oglio

Pray for the safe release of Fr. Paulo Dall’Oglio, who has been kidnapped and imprisoned by ISIS.

He is the founder in Syria of a Christian/Muslim Community of prayer at Mar Moussa, a refurbished 10th century monastery in Syria.

“Paolo’s vision was to create a monastic order dedicated to Abrahamic hospitality and Christian-Islamic dialogue and, until the war, Deir Mar Musa was a meeting point for Syrians of all faiths from across the country.” Emma Loosley, professor in the Department of Theology and Religion at Exeter University, England and colleague of Father Paolo.

On Jan. 29th of this year he was seen alive in an ISIS prison. He is at Raqaa. He has been a prisoner since 2013.
