Mother Agnes-Mariam of the Cross
What is Really Happening in Syria
Mother Agnes-Mariam of the Cross is Mother Superior at the Monastery and Convent of St. James the Mutilated in Qara, Syria. Gunmen attacked her vehicle in May, 2013. Much of the population in the towns around the monastery have been made refugees.
But Mother Agnes tells a story that is very different from what we get in the Western press. She has spoken in Ireland and Australia, and organized an international delegation led by Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire to come to Syria. And she is one of the main organizers of Mussalaha (“Reconciliation”), a popular movement in Syria that mediates disputes and organizes ceasefires between opposing forces.
