To die during Holy Week…

Posted on March 27, 2013. Filed under: News, Uncategorized |

Early morning Tuesday March 26th, Benjamin Camil was supervising distribution of food for the poor and displaced of Damascus. This work was not new to the 35 year old seminarian and soon to be deacon.  His bishop praised him for his kindness, generosity and service. 

At 11:30 AM, he was walking near his family home that is empty and abandoned since the outbreak of the war when a bomb fell and Benjamin Camil was killed instantly. 

As Maronite Archbishop Samir Nassar said of Benjamin Camil’s death, “To die during the Holy Week with the Crucified to serve and praise forever the Risen Savior and to beg for peace for his martyred country.”

Let us pray for the people of Syria and for the soul of Benjamin Camil

May perpetual light shine upon him and may his soul and the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace…
