Jesuit Bishop, "One Lives Day By Day."

Bishop Antoine Audo, S.J.
Syrians caught up in the ongoing fighting in the devastated city of Aleppo are exhausted and starving, a senior Antoine Audo, the Jesuit Chaldean bishop of Aleppo and president of the aid agency Caritas Syria, told the missionary news service Fides: "One lives day by day. I have the impression that people are more and more exhausted. They have all become poor and everyone is always looking for something to eat for himself and his family. "In the streets of Aleppo you can see the people that run endlessly with bags in their hand, trying to find a bit of bread," he said. He added that roads in the formerly prosperous city were being closed and that doctors were being threatened and forced to flee.
