FAN received a personal account of the last moments of the Sisters of Charity who were recently murdered in the convent and nursing home in Aden, Yemen. The Superior of the group, Sr. Sally, who managed to escape, wrote the very touching and heart-rending story, attached below. This horrific attack was specifically targeted at the Sisters because of their Christianity, it states. We invite you to read it and join Pope Francis in continuing to pray for these Sisters who continue to face such terrible threats because of their faith.
It is interesting to note Sr. Sally's clear distinction between the attackers (whom she calls ISIS) and "the other Muslims" who she writes, "are so respectful..." Indeed, we need to remember this is the work of extremists.
