White House Petition Urging the Release of Two Orthodox Christian Archbishops Held Hostage in Syria

To the Reverend Clergy and Faithful Stewards of the Metropolis of Boston:

His Eminence Metropolitan Methodios calls all faithful to sign the White House petition urgently asking the United States Government to use all its influence for the release of these two Orthodox Christian Archbishops and to bring a peaceful settlement to this bloodletting Syrian conflict through a negotiated settlement. This is an urgent appeal to President Obama and his Administration for the release of two Orthodox Christian Archbishops, namely Archbishop Paul Yazigi (top photo) and Archbishop Youhanna Ibrahim (bottom photo), who were abducted by armed rebels on April 23, 2013 in the suburbs of Aleppo, Syria.  The driver of the Archbishops was murdered and the Archbishops were forced by the rebels to go to an unknown location either in Syria or in Turkey.
