: Let us pray for the Souls of killed Christians in Asia Minor:
: Dear readers:
: This week is the memory of Christian genocide in Asia minor, in 24 April 1915 Turks began slaughtering Armenians and Greeks ( in Asia , Pontos, Cappadocia and Bythinia) and Syriacs( Syrian Christians) , who were living in Asia Minor and after the end of WW1, 6 millions of Armenians, Greeks and Syriacs were massacred by Turks and Christianity became extinct in all Asia Minor ( before the WW1 Christians were more than 65% of the population in Asia Minor) , after 1920 ,the rest of Greeks in Asia Minor fled to Greece and the rest of Armenians and Syriacs fled to Syria and France and all the world….
: During this genocide Turks destroyed thousands of monasteries and churches or changed them into mosques, stables or stores….
: Nobody in the world spoke about this terrible genocide, but it remains in hearts and minds as a black spot in the history of humanity.
: Let us all pray for the souls of these martyrs, the heroes of Christianity and nationality, and may our God Jesus Christ bless their souls and bless us all.
