The Feast of the Beheading of John the Baptist

RAW: Syrian Rebels Behead Christians | Military.com



It seems only yesterday that I sat in the Umayyad Mosque in Syria before the tomb of John the Baptist. But it was in 2008.



 I remember a young father with his toddler on his lap reciting the Khoran in an enchanting - well -  enchanting  chant. I didn't know the meaning of the words but I understood the poetic beauty of the Khoran that day.



I thought I had a glimpse of heaven that day!



And how many days of hell has Syria endured!?



"Thy Kingdom come.........."
