"No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends."
--Jesus (John 15:13)

“I shared with Syrians many beautiful moments, and received a lot. Now we see that these people are suffering a lot. The same way I shared with these people their treasures, I also want also to share with them their fear, pain, and death. Participation requires presence, staying in touch, being close. This is why I like to be in the centre, to move from fear to peace, from sadness to joy, from death to life.”
-- Father Frans van der Lugt, 75 year old Dutch Jesuit priest murdered in Homs, Syria
