Apostolic Nunciatura in Damascus
Dear father Elias,
I have received your letter and cassette which I shall deliver to Mgr. Paglia, jointly with Myrna’s letter, addressed to the Holy Father. Once in Rome, I will hand it over personnally.
Dear father Elias, my whole hearted thanks, not only for the friendly words you express in your letter dated 18/02, but especially for your friendship and your prayers.
May Our Lady of Soufanieh continue to protect us and to help us so as to remain witnesses of our Faith and interpret the Message of the Mother of God.
With my best wishes and in unity of prayer,
Mgr Luigi Accogli
