Last Christian in Homs Killed

I saw this headline and was heartbroken.  It saddens me that the cradle of Christianity, the Middle East, is losing all its Christians due to the violence, whether they move for safety reasons or are killed.  Here’s the link and the beginning of the article:

(ANSAmed) – Vatican City, 31 October – The last Christian who was in the centre of Homs was killed, after the civilian population was evacuated due to widespread fighting.

According to the Vatican’s Fides news agency, 84-year-old Elias Mansour, a Greek-Orthodox Christian did not want to leave his home on Wadi Sayeh street – even though he knew his life was in danger – because he had to take care of his handicapped son, Adnane.
