Prayer for the 97 refugee casualties from a capsized boat in the Mediterranean sea

30 Settembre 2022

We pray for the 97 people who passed away when a boat full of asylum seekers capsized in the Mediterranean. The boat left northern Lebanon and was supposed to reach Italy. After four hours of sailing, the engine stopped and, unfortunately, the high waves created a loss of control and the boat sank off the coast of Syria. There were about 150 men, women and children from Lebanon, Syria and Palestine who wanted to reach Europe. Survivors were shocked and many of them lost their beloved ones.
